Clark now has more than $800,000 in medical bills. Saturday members of the Blount County Sheriff's Office and other supporters came together to help Chase at Springbrook Park.

They made a fun event out of it by selling cotton candy, corn-hole games and a dunk tank.

People made donations and doing what they can to lift Chase's spirits.

WVLT was told this was the first time chase felt well enough to get dressed for the day and wear something other than his hospital gown.

Chase was transferred to the Shepard Center in Atlanta to further his treatment Sunday.

If you would like to make a donation, you can stop by the sheriff's office located at 940 E Lamar Alexander Pkwy, Maryville, TN 37804
