Will NeSmith suffered a spontaneous brain hemorrhage in 2012 at the age of 12, a rare event that occurs in less than one-tenth of one percent of the population. He spent weeks in a coma and two months in a hospital and learned he would spend years rehabilitating his brain and body to relearn everything from walking to talking.

NeSmith decided to start the Will Power 5K to celebrate his survival and raise money for Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT), the genetic condition which led to his injury.
