North Charleston, SC- Tuesday morning Trident Medical Center held an Honor Walk around 2:30 a.m.. 

“Her passions were her family and helping others,” Rod Whiting, Vice President of Public Relations & Communications for the hospital, told News 2 .  

The early morning Honor Walk was held in recognition of 33-year-old Allison Bell.
