5K Run/Walk for a Cure of Childhood Alzheimer's

About This Activity

The horror of Niemann-Pick Disease is too great for most of us to imagine. This rare, deadly disease robs a child of our most precious gift - life. At the same time parents must suffer through the gradual decline and certain death of their child. The 5K Run/Walk promotes awareness and raises money for research in hopes of a cure.
