The Brain Aneurysm Foundation is pleased to announce that its first fundraising 5K ever in New Hampshire will take place on Saturday, August 16, 2014. All are welcome and encouraged to walk, donate or volunteer.
Created and organized by the family and friends of Chris Bibeu, the First Annual Fundraiser—a 5K Walk in his Memory—will take place rain or shine at Derryfield Park located at 462 Bridge Street in Manchester, NH. Registration starts at 9:00am, with the walk slated to kick off at 10:00am.
The event is completely volunteer driven and all proceeds go directly to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.
It is not too late to register. Simply visit the event's registration and information site to register or to donate to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation. Donations of any size are accepted and appreciated.
About 6 million people have an unruptured brain aneurysm - and about 30,000 people in the U.S. alone suffer from a ruptured brain aneurysm—about 40% of which are fatal.
Now celebrating 20 years of service, the Brain Aneurysm Foundation was established in 1994 in Boston, Massachusetts with a mission to provide support, education and much needed funding to the medical community, as well as to provide critical support and informative materials to those who are newly diagnosed, survivors, family members, friends and the general public regarding the facts, treatment options, and recovery process for brain aneurysms.
