About This Activity

Goal: find effective treatment and a cure for Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN). An excruciatingly painful nerve disorder of unknown origin that causes sudden shock-like facial pains. Known as the suicide disease, TN strikes down adults and children and is described by top neurologists as the "Most painful human condition in the world".

THE FACIAL PAIN RESEARCH FOUNDATION is funding the most innovative research projects to find a cure to END THE PAIN!

Race to Save Face is a family and competitve event.  3 seperate events to choose. For children 12 and under we have a 1 mile fun run at 6:30pm, the main event which is the 5 mile race on  a shady country road nat 7:00pm, and a 2 mile walk that begins at 7:15pm. Walkers and runners recieve a shirt and goody bag, tickets for a glass wine donated by the School House Winery. A quaint country setting, tables, and seating are offered as well as entertainment by REN after the awards for the 5 mile race. Kids will recieve a ribbon and cupcake. Water will be on the course for the runners & at the finish line.

Refreshments and snacks are offered also to our participants and can also be purchased inside the winery if you're not a paid participant. A silent auction will be another highlight of our events. We look forward to seeing you this summer at the School House Winery for the 5th annual Race to Save Face!
