Event description
Join us in the race against Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD).

About this Event

Join us September 7th, 2019 at Roberts Elementary School for a 5k and 1 mile fun run against ALD. Adrenoleukodystrophy is a genetic disorder that most commonly affects male children ages 5-10, and attacks the myelin sheaths of the neurons in the brain. This affects the ability to think and control the muscles, and most cases lead to permananent disability or death within 2-5 years of diagnosis. This disease moves fast, and we have to move faster!

Trace Thompson is 9 years old. He loves soccer and drawing, and until recently was a healthy, carefree kid. After a string of hospital visits and illnesses, Trace was diagnosed with ALD in the spring of 2019 and is currently fighting for his life. He and his family have been forced to travel to Minnesota to seek gene replacement therapy to give Trace the best chance at conquering this disease. We are raising funds to support the Thompson family and the fight for Trace. To learn more about Trace and the fight against ALD or for sponsorship opportunities, visit our website at: www.racefortrace.com

**Please complete a separate registration for each individual runner.**
