TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Addison Bethea was attacked by a shark off the coast of Keaton Beach back in June.

Addison lost her leg and spent five weeks in the hospital.

Now, the community is invited to come together Saturday to help out the Taylor County teen for the “Fight Like Addison” Benefit ride and concert event.

While Addison was in recovery her family started a Facebook page “Fight Like Addison” to support her and also help the family raise funds for her medical expenses.

“It’s great having people support you the whole time because, without that support, you really couldn’t get through it by yourself, you’d get down in the pumps, and who going to lift your spirits when you’re down,” Addison said.

Guess who got to break out of the hospital today!! 🤜🏻🦈 Off to in-patient rehab she goes 👏🏻
