TENNESSEE

First Annual Knoxville 5k
Benefitting debra of America
Saturday, October 25th, 2014 (8AM)
Victor Ashe Park (4901 Bradshaw Rd)
Knoxville, TN

In this crazy world it is easy for people to rush by and take for granted a hug from a family member, a kiss from their parents, or holding the hand of a loved one, never knowing just how lucky they truly are. That’s why this 5k was organized in honor of Asa Madden, who struggles just to stand and walk every day. The money earned from this event will go to support research, provide supplies, and help to Asa and families like him. All proceeds from the “First Annual Knoxville 5K” debra of America and its programs/services including its search for treatments (making them commercially viable and available), and research to lead to a cure for Epidermolysis Bullosa, (EB).
To Register, please visit: http://debra.kintera.org/2014Knoxville5k
For more information or if you would like to help, please email events [at] debra [dot] org or call 212-868-1573.
