Colin Smith, Center, is a wounded veteran told he would never walk again. But that didn’t deter Colin and his father, Bob Smith, Left, from defying the odds. Colin and Bob worked together until they were able to walk together at the Jacksonville Run For The Warriors® in 2009. Knowing Colin would never be able to live completely independently, Bob came to us through the A Warrior’s Wish® Program to build a custom home for Colin so that his needs were met on his long road to recovery.
After Bob passed away, and the home he lovingly planned for Colin was finished to care for his needs. Hope For The Warriors® posthumously honored Bob Smith at the 2012 Got Heart, Give Hope® Gala for his commitment to provide for and encourage his son for a lifetime ahead.
This Father’s Day we remember inspiring fathers like Bob Smith who remind us of the impact our everyday heroes have on our lives and our legacy.
