Run for You: race description

I am excited to announce that I have received all the approvals required to produce a new 5K and 1-mile Family Walk in Wake Forest! The inaugural RUN for YOU will be held Saturday, October 31 with festivities running from 7am-11am. There will 4 on-site events as well as a virtual race.

Superhero Stride: 5k/3.1mile chip-timed USA Track &, Field certified &, sanctioned run/walk
Sidekick Shuffle: 1.1mile run/walk
Heros-in-training Dash (6 &, under 50-yard dash)
No Run Fun Run: all the fun of race day without actually having to run
Virtual 5K: t-shirts and race numbers will be sent to out-of-town runners unable to attend in person
Sam and his sister Sophia

By including the &ldquo,no run fun run&rdquo, and the &ldquo,virtual 5K&rdquo, we embrace friends, family, and others in who want to help but can&rsquo,t (or don&rsquo,t want to) run.

All runs will be dedicated to the memory of Sam Hopper. Sam lived in Raleigh for 6 short years and all that knew him loved him. He earned his wings in October 2014 but his memory lives on. He was a huge superhero fan so we will be encouraging people to bring out their inner superhero. A portion of our proceeds will go to the Sam Hopper Memorial Fund.

Friedrich&rsquo,s Ataxia is a genetic debilitating, life-shortening, degenerative neuro-muscular disorder affecting 1 in 50,000.
Symptoms include lost of coordination (ataxia) in arms and legs, fatigue, muscle loss, vision impairment, hearing loss, slurred speech, aggressive scoliosis, insulin dependent diabetes, and/or a serious heart condition all while maintaining full mental capabilities.

Most young people diagnosed require canes, walkers, or wheelchairs by their teens.

There are no known treatments. That&rsquo,s where comes into the picture!
