Did you know that October 9th is PANDAS Awareness Day? It’s not awareness for the cute, cuddly Panda bears, but for PANDAS, Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections. It occurs when strep triggers a misdirected immune response results in inflammation on a child’s brain.
To help raise awareness, we are hosting a PANDAS Day 5K. We only have 500 medals available, so once they’re gone, they’re gone! Order NOW!
We will also be donating at least 15% of every registration to PANDAS NETWORK, an incredible organization which is dedicated to improving the diagnosis and treatment of children with PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections) and PANS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome).
What: This is a virtual run (or walk) 5K to raise awareness of PANDAS.
When: Complete your race any time October! PANDAS Awareness Day is October 9, if you want to complete it then.
*Medals will be shipped out mid-September 2017.
Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).
Cost: $17. Includes medal, bib and shipping. Plus, we donate at least 15% of every registration to PANDAS NETWORK. *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them.
