Dr. Darren Smith, of Camas, ran in the Greensboro BB&T Gate City 8K, in North Carolina, in April. It was the inaugural event for “TeamUP,” which consists of eight people who have paralysis in one or both of their legs as a result of foot drop. The members have overcome their mobility issues with orthotic devices made by Allard USA. Smith, 47, plans to participate in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Portland Half Marathon Sunday.
