Event description

Description

Chain Breaker Girl is breaking the chains of silence surrounding Hep C because she cares! This Hep C Awareness Walk-a-thon is a 5K mile walk and will bring awareness to the community about this silent killer that is shaking the lives of people across the country.

Hepatitis C, also known as Hep C, is an infectious disease caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV) that primarily affects the liver. Initially, people often have mild or no symptoms- occasionally a fever, dark urine, or abdominal pain- and show signs of other common diseases such as: the flu, diabetes, and stomach virus. Do any of these symptoms sound familiar to you?

There is no vaccine against hepatitis C, and most do not know they are infected. Over many years, it often leads to liver disease and occastionally cirrhosis. In some caes, those with cirrhosis will develop complications such as liver failure, liver cancer, or dilated blood vessels in the esophagus and stomach.

Join the Hep C Awareness Walk-a-thon to get more information.

WEAR RED (FOR BLOOD) OR YELLOW (FOR LIVER) T-SHIRTS IN SUPPORT OF THE NATIONAL COLORS OF HEPATITIS C.
