Small Race Preview: 2017 Sage Bounds Medical Fund Run

If you are looking for a run with a cause you can really feel good about supporting, the Sage Bounds Medical Fund Run is just what you’ve been looking for. This run will help provide funds for a little one with a serious disease.

Sage has Ataxia-Telangiectasia, a rare genetic disease that attacks children causing progressive loss of muscle control, immune deficiencies and a high rate of cancer. It is like MS, cystic fibrosis, and immune deficiencies disease all rolled into one. Sage will start to show signs of this when she is a toddler and will be in a wheelchair early in life. She will have problems with speech and eye movement, and have an increased risk of getting lymphoma and leukemia. Most do not live past teens or early 20’s. There is currently no treatment or cure. But, we have hope and Sage is a fighter who can beat the odds! Join us in supporting her in her victory over A-T!!

This 5K will be held at Alton Baker Park in Eugene on March 18 and will be chip-timed by Eclectic Edge Racing. To see the 5K course map click here.
