Taylor Morris crew once again set to give back to the community

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The story of a hometown hero continues to inspire, as he gives back to his community. The U.S. Navy veteran and Cedar Falls native, captured the hearts of millions after we learned what happened to him in Afghanistan.

He became a quadruple amputee after an IED explosion three years ago.

Now,  family and friends are getting ready to once again give back to his community. Proceeds from this year's 5K will be granted to someone else. That business or organization will be announced at the race.

"We wanted to showcase other individuals, nonprofit, businesses, within the community that are inspirations," said Danielle Kelly, Taylor Morris fiancee.

The race is happening tonight at Gateway Park in Cedar Falls. If you would like to sign up: http://glowstick5k.com/
