CSRA Supports Riverwalk Beating Victim

Posted: Updated:
North Augusta, SC -

A positive update for a story WJBF has been following for months: Friends and family of Wesley Spires are saying a big thank you Saturday night.

Spires was the victim of a brutal beating on the Augusta Riverwalk back in May.  He did not have health insurance to cover a long hospital stay, so Saturday morning family and friends organized a 5K walk at Riverview Park to raise money for those medical bills.

The group raised about $2,000.

If you couldn't make it out to the 5k, but you want to help, you still can; there is a medical donation fund in Spires' name at Georgia Bank and Trust in Augusta or North Augusta.
