3 Strides for Sarah is the third annual 5k run/1mile walk in honor of a 5-year old girl with Marfan Syndrome. The event benefits the National Marfan Foundation by creating medical scholarships for affected children.
Marfan syndrome is a disorder of the connective tissue which holds all parts of the body together and helps control how the body grows. Because connective tissue is found throughout the body, Marfan syndrome features can occur in many different parts of the body and is most often found in the heart, blood vessels, bones, joints, and eyes. Sometimes the lungs and skin are also affected. About 1 in 5,000 people have Marfan syndrome including men and women of all races and ethnic groups.
The race will be chip timed by Iaap and awards given to the overall first place male and female winner and the top three finishers in each age group. Technical shirts are given to the first 300 registrants. Children 5 and under are free with signed waiver. Additional information available at www.stridesforsarah.com
