Hosted by the LMC Corporation, the 2nd Annual Linda McClam Curtis 5K Run/Walk will pay tribute to those who have survived this devastating affliction, as well as shine the spotlight on the importance of working with the world renowned Brain Aneurysm Foundation to increase awareness and knowledge of the signs and symptoms of brain aneurysms in order to improve the odds of overcoming and surviving a ruptured brain aneurysm.
