Jog for the Journey sees 325 runners compete

Scott Stephens

CROSBY – Jog for the Journey was packed with 325 participants and 20 sponsors last Saturday as the running group adopted the memorial foundation for Cody Stephens.

The Cody Stephens Go Big or Go Home Memorial Foundation in partnership with East Houston Regional Hospital has been dedicated to help get heart screenings for Texas students with results from Crosby students needing physicals for athletic endeavors receiving them free next year and free to those potential athletes from 7th grade to 9th grade the next year and new students moving into the district, also heart screenings offered to all students wanting them next year for just $15. But the results do not stop there, the efforts have reached all the way to House Bill 1319 “Cody’s Bill” in hearing next week in the Public Education Committee in the Texas House of Representatives. The House Bill 1319 has seven cosponsors. This week at the Awards Presentation inside Crosby High School, Scott Stephens received for the Foundation $450 raised by Crosby High School Cheerleaders for T-shirt sales and $1000 from P.A.C 10 A.M. to help fund the screenings over the next three years.
