About This Activity

Beautiful course, winding through a quiet, treelined neighborhood. Race will be run rain or shine. Race tshirts are limited to the first 250 online registrants.

A mother’s story: In February 2012 my youngest daughter was diagnosed with Progressive Infantile Scoliosis. She was merely 4 months old, her father had just returned home from Afghanistan less than 48 hours prior, and we were suddenly told that this perfect, beautiful little girl had a major spinal deformity. Her spinal curvature was at 41* and as the name suggests, the curve would continue to progress if left untreated. I prayed, and in truth I begged, that God would hold my hand and walk with me, pointing me in the direction we needed to go. He did. He led me to Heather, founder of the Infantile Scoliosis Outreach Program. She was a light in the darkness. One phone call and suddenly I was no longer alone. After being “casted” in a Mehta cast at the age of 4 ½ months, making her one of the youngest children ever casted, I’m overjoyed to say that my daughter is well on her way to being cured. The Infantile Scoliosis Outreach Program is instrumental in educating physicians in the United States as well as around the world. Please join me in supporting them and spread the word that there is a non-surgical CURE! **Below is a 5 month old little girl, who is wearing a Mehta cast. This cast is the magical key in treating this condition. While it may look uncomfortable, there are zero incisions made on her tiny body. Quite simply this cast allows her to "grow straight." It's her cure. And the best part? It worked.
