We were thrilled to partner with 30 Boston Scientific volunteers on June 13th to landscape at Zack Mohs’ house in South St. Paul.
Zack grew up in South St. Paul and was nearly killed after being run over and dragged by a hit-and-run driver while trying to cross an intersection in Anchorage, Alaska in 2012. He was in a coma for a month and suffered a traumatic brain injury, fractured vertebrae, an amputated leg and broken bones. Zack is in a wheelchair and is still undergoing outpatient physical and occupational therapy at the Courage Center.
The Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC) Foundation has been working with Zack and his mother, Cheryl, to help build an accessible home for Zack on land Cheryl purchased in South St. Paul. Through generous contributions from BATC’s members and funds raised through Barnraisings, Zack’s home has become a reality.
With the support and hard work of Boston Scientific volunteers, we were able to help make Zack’s house more of a home this month. Volunteers landscaped the yard and exterior of the home, including laying sod and planting flowers and bushes.
Thank you to everyone who has come together to bring Zack home!
