Four Pillar Fitness is hosting a fundraiser 5K for Dyllon Peters who tragically suffered complications during surgery. This April Dyllon, 20, was scheduled to have minor in and out surgery to remove noncancerous tumors from his right leg. There were complications during surgery. After several days and several surgeries and being heavily sedated in ICU, Dyllon awoke to be told the doctors were unable to save his right foot. Dyllon underwent a below knee amputation.
Although the surgery was successful, now is when the hard work for Dyllon begins.
Dyllon has an amazing outlook on life and what is coming up in his near future.
The surrounding community, led by Four Pillar Fitness in Bountiful, is showing their support for Dyllon through a 5K Fun Run fundraiser on June 16 at North Foxboro Regional Park in North Salt Lake. Proceeds go to the Dyllon Peters Foundation to be used to cover the unexpected surgery costs and on-going physical therapy expenses.
