Event description

Description

In August of 2009, we lost our only son Brandon to Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) it is a fatal complication of epilepsy. Since that time we have always tried to raise awareness of this disease. Brandon was the most loving and caring person you would probably ever meet. He never met a stranger, and was kind to everyone. He was only months away from his college graduation, and because of his leadership and participation on the campus, the college named a scholarship in his honor. The Brandon J. Elliott Memorial Scholarship. We have given away approximately 10 $ 500.00 scholarships since his death. This fun run is designed to raise awareness of Epilepsy and to raise money for his scholarship fund at Arkansas Northeastern College in Blytheville, AR. There is no registration fee for the race however if you would like to donate to the scholorship fund you may do so by click the following link. https://www.anc.edu/donate/

Once you click the link, there will be a fill-in box that says "Description" In that box please type "Brandon Elliott Scholarship Additionally, in the box under "price" put whatever amount you desire to give. The rest of it is pretty user friendly and walks you through the steps. You will receive an online receipt for your records, and I will be notified that a gift has been received in Brandon's memory.

We will be raffling off two gift baskets during this event, and those that donate will receive a free raffle entry! This is a fun run, it is not a competition, so everyone is welcome! Bring the whole family! You can run or walk the one mile course, or simply just enjoy the food, music and fun! Certificates of participation will be given to all who participate!
