Join us as we lace up our running and walking shoes to bring Lewy Body Dementia (LBD) down. LBD is the second most common form of degenerative dementia, affecting more than 1.4 million individuals in the United States. Despite this, many people have never heard of the disease. This race aims to raise awareness and funds for LBDA, Inc. so that its research may one day find a cure and in the future we will never hear of Lewy Body Dementia again!
Those who register by May 29, 2017 are guaranteed a free T-shirt. Chip timing provided by Bull City Running Co.
