About This Activity

Mountain View Regional Hospital and The Facial Pain Association (FPA) are teaming up to raise awareness about Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN), a piercing facial pain that can affect the areas near the eyes, nose, lips, ears and teeth.  All community members are invited to support ongoing research for TN by participating in the First Annual Facing It 5K event.

July marks the 25th anniversary of FPA.  To celebrate this milestone, Mountain View Regional Hospital wants to help pick up the pace in raising awareness about this rare, but serious medical condition. In fact, it's so serious, it's often refered to as the Suicide Disease. All participants are encouraged to get their faces or upper-arms painted with the TN Facial Pain awareness ribbon before the race. Racers will receive a free t-shirt and gift bags that include special offers from local business sponsors. In addition, racers and their families are invited to stay for a free brunch after the race. Please plan to come support this cause to help raise money and awareness for TN.

Proceeds raised at the First Annual Facing It 5K will benefit the newly formed "Facial Pain Research Foundation" to help find a cure.  For more information contact Lisa Hulshizer, Public Relations Manager for MVRH, at 307-995-8108, Alice Theobald, Facial Pain Association Support Group Leader for Wyoming, at 307-245-3431, or visit the FPA webpage at fpa-support.org.
