The Ellie Helton Memorial 5K/Fun Run/Silent Auction

October 15, 2016

Ellie Helton, a vibrant, loving 14-year old, passed away on July 16, 2014, as a result of a brain aneurysm. Ellie loved God, her family and friends, superheroes, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and pizza. She was a unique spirit who loved life, was accepting of others and persevered in everything she tried. This race is run in honor of this special girl and to raise awareness and funds for research. "...and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." Hebrews 12:1 This year our event will be raising funds to support our Chair of Research in Honor of Ellie Helton to help the Foundation in their mission to promote early detection of brain aneurysms by providing knowledge and raising awareness of the signs, symptoms and risk factors. Work with the medical communities to provide support networks for patients and families, as well as to further research that will improve patient outcomes and save lives.
