Together, we can help fight the devastation caused by brain aneurysms and save lives right here in our community.
Hanover, MA (PRWEB) September 30, 2015
Please join us for the 3rd Annual BAAR: Brain Aneurysm Awareness Run on Saturday, October 3, 2015 at 150 Louella Avenue in Wayne, Pennsylvania. All proceeds from the event will benefit the world renowned Brain Aneurysm Foundation.
In previous years, this popular event raised close to $35,000 because of the many runners, walkers and volunteers who have graciously participated and supported this critical cause.
If you are unable to attend the event but would still like to participate and show your support, please register as a "virtual" participant by visiting the event website.
This annual event was originally created by a cognitive neuroscientist and members of his research lab so that they could give back to those patients who they believed so generously contributed to their understanding of the consequences of brain injury.
One of the events organizers noted, “Together, we can help fight the devastation caused by brain aneurysms and save lives right here in our community.”
The fee to participate in the event is $30 for adult, and $20 for students and children. All proceeds benefit the renowned Brain Aneurysm Foundation.
Registration on the morning of the event begins at 7:45am, and the 5K Run kicks off right at 9:00 am. Please note that chip timing will be provided for all runners. The 1 Mile Walk begins at 9:05am.

The Brain Aneurysm Foundation was established in 1994 in Boston, Massachusetts with a 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.
