The Cooper 5K is a family friendly, kid oriented race/walk dedicated to growing awareness and money for Kawasaki Disease. Adult registration (12 & up) is $25 and includes an official race t-shirt, race bib and goody bag. Kids 11 & younger can run/walk for free or run the kid's course.
Kawasaki disease (KD), also known as Kawasaki syndrome, is a serious illness characterized by inflammation of blood vessels throughout the body that primarily affects young children and infants. Kawasaki disease is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in children. Although about 80 percent of patients are under five years of age, older children and teenagers can also get KD, but this is uncommon. KD is more common in boys than girls, and the majority of cases are diagnosed in the winter and early spring. It is not contagious.
Without treatment, about 25% of children develop heart disease involving the coronary arteries. Timely diagnosis and treatment (which usually includes intravenous gamma globulin) is highly effective in preventing coronary complications.
To have a shirt included in your registration, you MUST register by September 23 by noon. T-shirts will be available day of for Purchase ONLY.
