Run for You

About This Activity
I am excited to announce that I have received all the approvals required to produce a new 5K and 1-mile Family Walk in Wake Forest! The inaugural RUN for YOU will be held Saturday, October 31 with festivities running from 7am-11am. There will 4 on-site events as well as a virtual race.
Superhero Stride: 5k/3.1mile chip-timed USA Track & Field certified & sanctioned run/walk Sidekick Shuffle: 1.1mile run/walk Heros-in-training Dash (6 & under 50-yard dash) No Run Fun Run: all the fun of race day without actually having to run Virtual 5K: t-shirts and race numbers will be sent to out-of-town runners unable to attend in person Sam and his sister Sophia
By including the “no run fun run” and the “virtual 5K” we embrace friends, family, and others in who want to help but can’t (or don’t want to) run.
All runs will be dedicated to the memory of Sam Hopper. Sam lived in Raleigh for 6 short years and all that knew him loved him. He earned his wings in October 2014 but his memory lives on. He was a huge superhero fan so we will be encouraging people to bring out their inner superhero. A portion of our proceeds will go to the Sam Hopper Memorial Fund.
Beneficiary Friedrich’s Ataxia is a genetic debilitating, life-shortening, degenerative neuro-muscular disorder affecting 1 in 50,000. Symptoms include lost of coordination (ataxia) in arms and legs, fatigue, muscle loss, vision impairment, hearing loss, slurred speech, aggressive scoliosis, insulin dependent diabetes, and/or a serious heart condition all while maintaining full mental capabilities.
Most young people diagnosed require canes, walkers, or wheelchairs by their teens.
There are no known treatments. That’s where CureFA.org comes into the picture!
