After encountering extreme injury while playing college football, ESPN journalist Kenny Mayne endured surgeries, physical therapy treatments, and pain before being fitted for a device that alleviated his pain called the Intrepid Dynamic Exoskeletal Orthosis.

The device can save patients from amputation and can vastly improve their quality of life, however, it is quite costly and is rarely covered by insurance providers. Now that Mayne has experienced the incredible results firsthand, he wants others to be able to live life to their fullest too, especially our injured military veterans.

With his new organization RunFreely, Mayne is raising money so veterans can go through the process of being fitted for the Orthosis device without financial stress and enjoy walking and running pain-free.

In August 11, Kenny Mayne will be joined by Jerry Rice, Steve Largent, Gary Payton, Jamal Crawford and Lenny Wilkens for a family-friendly event benefiting RunFreely. Hear Seattle sports legends speak about their career and enjoy food trucks at Sammamish High School, 100 140th Ave. SE, Bellevue from 12:00PM - 3:00 PM. Tickets are on sale now.
