In memory of Ellie Helton
Supporting The Bee Foundation

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. The Carolina Brain Aneurysm 5K and Fun Run is held in honor of this special girl and to raise awareness and funds for research.

" ... and Iet us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." Hebrews 12:1
