Remembering the life and legacy of Mr. Johnny Stevenson


Mr. Stevenson was one of the very first believers in HOPE when planning the first Run For The Warriors in 2006. As the mission of run became the foundation of our organization, he was always a phone call away offering his wisdom and support
For 12 years, his support and that of his businesses at our Run For The Warriors race was endless, graciously helping us host community planning meetings and ensuring all our needs for a successful race were met. His commitment to sharing hope expanded well beyond Jacksonville, N.C., but at racetracks across the country by Stevenson Motorsports race teams.

The warmth and happiness felt while in his presence and the love he had for our community inspired us all to be better people and neighbors. Although he may be gone from this earth, the impact that he has made on Jacksonville, NC, community will last for forever.
