The Run For Ellie 5K is an event to raise money for Ellie Spencer and family. Ellie is a local 10 year old girl who has battled serious health issues since she was an infant. She was diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome at 3 months old and had her first heart surgery at 6 months old. She recently spent 32 days in the hospital following another surgery. Her family is faced with incredible medical expenses and we want to show them how much their community cares and wants to help. All proceeds will go to Ellie and her family. Registration is $20 and the first 50 people to register will receive a free t-shirt.


If you would like to register for the 5k, click here! Or if you just want to be a sponsor and donate, click here!
