Jackson Saville

Stacy and Bill watch on as Jackson Saville celebrates crossing the finish line with Big Blue at the Big Blue 1K Kids Race at Old Dominion University on Saturday April 14, 2018. Saville trained for the event through a program called Mighty Monarchs, a program for special needs children that introduces them to a variety of adapted sports. Prior to his Spinraza injects, the Saville family had ordered a motor to help Jackson navigate his chair as his body weakened, but his strength has grown and he was able to participate in a 1K, something his mother Stacy says she never thought would be possible for her son prior to his Spinraza injections.
