Don't Stop the Beat 5K Race Description

The Kickin’ Kawasaki 5K race in Bryan, OH is known as the Don’t STOP The Beat 5K and Fun Run. The Grant family has experienced Kawasaki Disease first hand, their son Owen fought the fight and won and they now want to spread awareness with your help. Kawasaki Disease (KD), also known as Kawasaki syndrome, is a serious illness characterized by inflammation of blood vessels throughout the body that primarily affects young children and infants. Kawasaki disease is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in children. Although, about 80 percent of patients are under five years of age, older children and teenagers can also get KD, but this is uncommon. KD is more common in boys than girls, and the majority of cases are diagnosed in the winter and early spring. It is not contagious.

Without treatment, about 25% of children develop heart disease involving the coronary arteries. Timely diagnosis and treatment (which usually includes intravenous gamma globulin) is highly effective in preventing coronary complications.

What’s in the name Kickin’ Kawasaki 5K? Honestly, to kick butt on Kawasaki Disease. Kawasaki Disease is the #1 reason for acquired heart disease in kids. With timely diagnoses in the critical 10-day window, long-term damage can be prevented. The Kickin’ Kawasaki 5K is the umbrella 5K race name for all of our races, but each race is personalized to local families. Kawasaki Disease is real and causes long-term damage in too many kids.

Run, jog, walk, sponsor, or volunteer with us to help raise funds to continue to spread awareness, to support affected families, and to aid in the research of finding a cause and a cure – let’s kick Kawasaki Disease! Interested in hosting your own Kickin’ Kawasaki 5K? Contact us today.
