About This Activity

Come out and Run Bryn Athyn!! But you don't have to be runner! You could just come out and walk it!

Run Bryn Athyn is done completely in Bryn Athyn. Bryn Athyn, for those of you who don't know is a small, faith-based community with much to offer. Participants have the option of either running a 5k or walking a mile with all participants receiving a free Run Bryn Athyn T-shirt. However, only participants in the 5k will be eligible for the awards given to the winner of each age group including a giftcard to be well bakery. The event is being funded by the New Church Charity Works organization and other generous sponsors in and around the community with the goal being that registration fees participants pay can go directly to charity. Run Bryn Athyn is supporting the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation. They seek, “To promote research and education for the diagnosis, treatment, and cure of mitochondrial disorders and to provide support to affected individuals and families.” Most people don’t know what Mitochondrial Disease is as it is a rare genetic disorder. It causes the malfunction of the mitochondria, which are the powerhouses of every cell in the body. Some of the symptoms/complications include confinement to a wheelchair, loss of sight and hearing, and heart failure -- basically anything that is muscular is at risk. This event is great way to raise awareness of and fight Mitochondrial Disease.Run Bryn Athyn is being organized by a patient of Mitochondrial Disease. Weston Wadsworth is a senior at the Academy of the New church and is putting on the event. Fortunately, Mitochondrial disease was not as harsh for him. You would not know he had the disease as he is only slightly physically more inept than his peers. Now he wants to give back to those with the disease who were not so fortunate. He hopes you will register for this event to help fight the disease.
