Elliott's Angels 508K for Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Race Description

Welcome Back Returnees!! And Welcome New comers!! Our 2nd Annual 5.08K Run/Walk to raise money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis families. We choose to host a 5.08K over any other fundraising effort last year because we knew as parents of a CFer we need to set an example for Elliott and other kids. Why 5.08k and not a 5K, because Elliott has a Double DeltaF580 Mutation of Cystic Fibrosis and we wanted to specialize the run/walk. Living a healthy life style and keeping the lungs healthy is priority especially for those with Cystic Fibrosis. It is our sincere hope to reach out and raise awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis Community across Michigan through donating to the Friends and Family of CF Foundation as well as Elliott's Angels giving the local CFers a chance to just be a kid as often as possible. Our goal is 100 registered runners for this event. Get out your wildest Purple clothing, hats and shoes, make a sign to support why you walk or who you walk for and come join us for the 2nd Elliott’s Angles 508K Run/Walk….

 

Elliott is four years old. He was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at five days old and was born with a meconium ileus. After many surgery’s and procedures, he came home from the hospital at almost 5 months old. Elliott is an adorable, fun loving little boy who loves his little sister, race cars and trucks. Elliott doesn’t enjoy his nightly treatments, but needs them to survive. Cystic fibrosis is an inherited life-shortening and life-threatening disease that damages the lungs, digestive system, pancreas, and other organs. It is incurable, with Elliott he can do whatever he wants if we put his medical care first, however, this is not always going to be the case. When Elliott isn’t busy with treatments, therapies, doctor visits or suffering through flare-ups (which can result in two-week hospital stays for “tune-ups”), he is able to be a kid. He spends two to three hours each day doing treatments and therapies. The median lifespan of a child with CF is 42 years old.

 

This is a fun 5.08k run/walk, Jogging strollers are recommended if using one. Half of the run is on a seasonal road where you will turn around and head back to the finish for those doing the 508K. We encourage you to wear purple, the official color of Cystic Fibrosis. Go ahead and deck yourself out! Have fun with it! Elliott’s Angels Run for Fun: Pause for the Cause will be on June 2nd, race time starting at 9 am. Runners will meet starting at 8 am to register. Registration will be held at the Lake City Mini Golf on Houghton rd. Lake City, MI. Day of Registration will be allowed at 8am.

Friday, June 1st we will have a table set up in town for last minute registers and donations. Location pending.

 

Online registration is available here https://www.raceentry.com/races/elliotts-angels-508k-for-cystic-fibrosis-awareness/2018/register

 

We have set up 9 age brackets, Ages 8 brackets up, an award will be given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd person to finish in each bracket. Our younger brackets 4-7 will all receive an award. 

Our first year we didn't time the run, however, we are making every effort to make that possible this year. We thank runners last year for being so awesome and not having a problem timing themselves.

 

We truly hope you will join us in supporting Elliott's Angels and Friends and Family of Cystic Fibrosis and create awareness by participating in this event. Those who register by May 10th will save $5 dollars and are guaranteed an Elliott’s Angels T-Shirts. Extra T-Shirts will be for sale the day of race for $15.
