Organiser's Description

Dravet Syndrome Foundation's 2nd Annual Steps Toward a Cure: Michigan 5k run, fun run, and family walk!

Last year was a great success and we are hoping to build on that this year!!

Invite your friends and family to join Steps Toward a Cure to help raise awareness and funds for our important research and patient advocacy programs. There will be a 5k, kids fun run, and a family walk to follow. Kid friendly activities will be available at the picnic area along with a silent auction! Bagels, donuts, and coffee in the morning and a lunch is to be offered as well! All children with Dravet syndrome can register for free with a registered adult.

Medals awarded to all 5k participants! 5k is timed and results will be available after the race.

Dravet Syndrome Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to aggressively raising research funds for Dravet syndrome and related conditions. Dravet Syndrome Foundation's ability to fund research is due in large part to the generous support of individual donors and sponsors who believe in our mission. So much progress has been made over the past 10-20 years, but there is more to do!

Dravet syndrome is a rare and catastrophic form of epilepsy beginning in childhood. Dravet Syndrome is associated with behavioral and developmental delays, sleeping difficulties, orthopedic conditions, sensory integration disorders, and more. People diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome also have a 15-20% chance of SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy).

All registered participants will receive an event T-Shirt. All 5k participants will receive a participant medal and results will be tracked and posted following the event!
