25,000 Steps for Mark Byrd

November 18, 2019

A much-loved member of our community, known for his kind words and actions, John Middleswarth will begin his walking journey to raise funds for our very own Zebulon Police Department Lieutenant Ashley Dixon’s father, Mark Byrd, this week.  Mr. Byrd experienced a tragic accident by fire, which has left him with burns over most of his body.  He has had several reconstructive and restorative surgeries, and continues to be in hospital.  His wife, Belinda, and daughters remain by his side. 
 
Mr. Middleswarth is taking this upon himself to raise funds for this community family in an effort to offset some of the expense of medical costs and their wages lost from being out of work.  Suggested donation is $1 per 1,000 steps, but those who are willing may give more if desired.
 
He has requested that those who want to contribute to the cause mail their donations via checks made payable to Belinda Byrd to his home address.
