About This Activity

The 3rd Annual Go With Your Gut 5K will be held Saturday October 8th, 2016 at Homestead Park in Hilliard Ohio. Both the 5K and 1 mile walk will take you through the trails of Homestead Park. The Kid's Dash and Kid's Timed 1 Mile will be back again this year for the youngsters. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness and funding for gastroparesis research.

Gastroparesis occurs when the stomach empties too slowly. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, inability to finish a meal, as well as pain, bloating and heartburn. For most people, the cause of gastroparesis is unknown (idiopathic). Gastroparesis may also be caused by a viral infection, diabetes, surgery and some medications. At this time, treatment for gastroparesis is aimed at symptom management through diet, medication and sometimes supplemental nutrition or surgical procedures. There is no cure for gastroparesis.

Your participation in this event will support Digestive Health Alliance (DHA). The DHA is part of the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD), “a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for those affected by chronic digestive conditions.” The DHA “works to inspire change through coordinated fundraising, advocacy and awareness efforts.”  100% of the race proceeds will go to DHA.
