Community Rallies for Skateboarder at 5k

SvetalEUGENE, Ore. — The community is rallying around a skateboarder from Eugene who was hit by a car in November.

Dozens are expected to turn out Saturday for the Seize the Day 5k for Scotty Svetal.

It kicks off at 11 a.m. on the Adidas Trails near the Amazon Skatepark, which is located at 2580 Hillyard Street. You can register on site.

Scotty hopes the run helps raise helmet awareness. He wasn’t wearing a helmet and suffered critical injuries from the accident.

After our story aired with Scotty last week, Secure First Medical Transport called to tell the family they would transport Scotty to and from the race for free.
