About This Activity

This is an UNTIMED charity 5K and 1-mile Fun Run for Michael Warechowski. All ages welcome! On March 27, 2012, Marietta residents Katie and Mike Warechowski found out that their 2-year-old Michael has a degenerative condition called Metachromatic Leukodystrophy (MLD)- a fatal disease that takes away all motor and mental functions. Life expectancy for Michael is about 6-7 years of age. Help us bless this family with resources so they can enjoy every moment they have together. 100% proceeds from this charity 5K will go directly to Michael. Please watch this 11-Alive video about Mikey so you can understand the importance of this race and the impact that your participation will have...
