Event description

Description

AvantGuard Monitoring Centers is happy to announce its annual “AG Run for a Reason.” Each year, AG team members nominate families from the local community who are experiencing financial and medical strains. Upon receiving the nominations, The AvantGuard 5K Committee selects a single family to be the beneficiary of the fundraising efforts.


In order to raise money for these families, AG hosts a 5K run and mile walk where its team members and other participants register to donate to the family. This event allows AvantGuard the opportunity to show its commitment to caring for the community, which makes strides to improve the quality of life; one family at a time. AvantGuard invites you to show your generosity as a sponsor for this event with a donation of at least $200.


This year AvantGuard is holding the event to benefit the Thurgood family, specifically Leo Thurgood. Leo is the son of Josh and Jenn Thurgood. He is considered an “O” baby, meaning he was born with an Omphalocele, a thin layered sac that contained his liver outside of his body.


In addition to the complications from his Omphalocele, Leo also has holes in his heart and a possible hernia. Support from this race will help his parents pay for the care he needs and coralle community support for his family.


AvantGuard hosts this event each year, purely for the benefit of paying-it-forward. Therefore, 100 percent of the race proceeds and donations go to the family in need for medical care expenses. AvantGuard Monitoring Centers, and donations from community partners like you, pay for the cost of the race, timing system, shirts, and signage. All organizers of the race are volunteers and receive no compensation from the donations received.
