About This Activity

Sarah's Cure Gorilla Run takes place in the scenic Historical downtown Decatur, TX.  The fall weather will be perfect for a morning run and the hilly course will make it challenging yet rewarding when crossing the finish line. Come run in a gorilla suit and the best dressed will get an award.  You can always get an early Halloween costume and make it a fun morning!!!  We will have music and a raffle as well. The event is one of the largest fundraisers that support a rare genetic disorder called Galactosemia.  Proceeds go directly to the Galactosemia Foundation (www.galactosemia.org) - a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate, support and provide advocacy for those affected by galactosemia and supports research for a cure or treatment.  A portion will also be given to Leukemia Team in Training.
