About this Event

BURNING FOR A CURE FOR CRPS VIRTUAL 5K RUN WALK

For this event The Virtual Run Challenge has directly partnered with ComplexTruths Inc. to help bring awareness and to help for a cure for what is known as one of the most painful diseases in the world.

It is a disease of the NERVOUS SYSTEMS (Central, Sympathetic, Enteric & Autonomous) that can happen to any one, after any injury, at any time. CRPS is more common in women over 40 with a history of migraine, or other injuries but affects children (as young as three), and men.

It normally starts after an injury to a limb, such as a sports injury, like tearing an ACL, spraining an ankle, injuring a shoulder or getting elbow surgery – but not always. It can happen after ANY injury to the body, anywhere, including heart attack, stroke, all surgeries of any type, getting poked by a needle or thorn of a rose, or stubbing your toe.

The focus of this event and the funds raised are to build technology & infrastructure for ComplexTruths.org to help keep our website alive, which has over 400 pages of information about CRPS, that reaches over 50,000 people a year worldwide, and will help keep our foundation spreading awareness to doctors and emergency rooms in the United States. We know that by creating a way for doctors to quickly look up information and protocols about the disease in a way they will understand and making literature available to them, we can close the gap from 3-5 years to less than one year.

This virtual 5k challenge is set to take place during the month of November which is the national awareness month for CRPS.
