Family members have set up a 5k run/walk to benefit a woman who remains in a coma after she was struck by a suspected drunken driver last month.

Stacy Bridges was side swept by a suspected drunken driver just a few days after Christmas.

Since then, family members says she's gone through several surgeries and remains in a coma.

"She did sustain a lacerated liver and she's had seven surgeries since being at SAMM-C," said Roxanne Bridges.

Roxanne Bridges is now taking care of Stacy's 3-year-old daughter Brianna. She says each day the little girl is looking for her mother. A single mother who was very active in her children's lives. 

"Stacy is a tremendous person, she has a heart bigger than anyone imaginable," said Bridges.

Police say the person who hit bridges was a 21-year-old woman, suspected of DWI.

The accident occurred last month at Perrin Beitel and Loop 410. Since the accident, the Mercy Coalition has been helping the family and organizing a 5K run in February to raise money for Stacy's family.

It's called the Stacy Bridges 5K Support Walk/Run. All money raised will go toward Stacy's family.

"It's always good to know you're not alone and to know there's lots of people that care and there's people who want to help," said Leslie Bellieu from the Mercy Coalition.

"For her to not be here with us, it's been a little difficult we really want her back," said Bridges.

Stacy bridges remains in ICU at San Antonio Military Medical Center. Although everyday is a battle for her, family members are hopeful she will wake up very soon from her coma.

The Stacy Bridges 5K Support walk/run is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. Feb. 8 at Walkers Ranch on Nakoma and West Avenue.

You can sign up online. All proceeds will go to the Stacy Bridges’ daughters.
