About This Activity

Join us 9AM, Saturday, May 31st at Walker Ranch Park for our first Run For Roper 5k Run/Walk! There will be music, food, fun activities, and you can bring all of your friends and family too!

            Run For Roper is taking place to raise funds for a very loved member of the community, Ashley Roper. Ashley was a student at Churchill High School and is one in a family of six. Ashley Roper suffers from Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). POTS can be very debilitating and some of the symptoms include fainting, extreme fatigue, nausea, and muscle weakness. It mainly affects the hearts ability to pump blood throught your body, specifically when standing up. Because of this it can cause almost any daily task to become very dificult. Ashley is no longer able to attend school anymore, and spends a lot of time in hospitals. The hospital bills can add up fairly quickly, and all earnings of the event will go straight to the Roper family. They will then decide how it gets distributed to both Ashleys hospital bills, as well as POTS research or local charities.

We're asking you to help us support the family of Ashley Roper and come out to run, walk, jog,  skip, or even hop this 5k with us! Your support and participation can make a HUGE impact on a very deserving family!
