About This Activity

5K Run/Walk hosted by Lanier Islands Community Church to benefit Abigail Faith Haynes, born on May 7, 2012 with a rare vascular disease known as Venous Malformations. The resulting thin blood vessels cause lesions that grow rapidly into benign tumors, and nine Venous Malformations have been identified since Abigail's diagnosis in March of 2013. As of the end of 2013, Abigail has endured five surgeries, and these malformations continue to migrate to other areas and grow. If left untreated, this disease has a high probability of affecting Abigail throughout her entire life. Unfortuanetly, insurance does not cover the cost of the necessary surgeries, and all proceeds will go to help Abigail's family with medical bills.
