The Running For Angels 5k race benefited the Foundation For Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics to help fund important research for treatment for Angelman Syndrome.
Angelman Syndrome is a genetic disorder. Characteristic features of this condition include developmental delay, speech impairment, and problems with movement and balance (ataxia).
Angels have a happy demeanor and laugh easily. While Angels cannot speak, they do have much to say.
Many angels also suffer from epilepsy. The seizures can be debilitating and, in some cases, even fatal.
The next event in the Running for Angels Race Series will be a Running for Angels Summer Race the week of August 25th. Participants will have the option to complete a 5k, 10k, half marathon, full marathon, or team marathon.
For the full and half marathon, participants be given the entire week to complete the distance and will have the option to tun it all at once, or a little each day. The team marathon will consist of groups of 4 and the group will collectively run 26.2 miles.
