About This Activity

Thank you for visiting the Winter Wonderland Glut-1 awerness run. This run is going to be full of fun! We will have vendors and costume contests! Come out and have some fun with the Pueblo County Deca Chapter!

This run was created to raise awerness for a rare diseas called Glut-1. Glut-1 stands for glutcose transporter deficcency syndrome. Less than 500 people in the world suffer from the rare genetic disorder. People with Glut-1 are missing the gene that transports sugar to their brain and often leave their brains starving for energy. Although there is no cure for the disease there is a special diet called the keto genic diet. The awerness of this disorder is important because physicians think their are many undiagnoised cases.
