Show your support for Childhood Rare Disease Awareness with a 5k and 1 mile fun run!

 

The inaugural Vegas Cares About Rare 5K Run / 1M Walk is scheduled for Saturday, February 25th in Las Vegas (location TBD).  Proceeds from this event will benefit the Little Miss Hannah Foundation, a Las Vegas 501(c)(3) non-profit charity.  The organization's mission is to assist families caring for children that are diagnosed with a rare diseases, life-limiting or complex medical conditions, and those children placed in palliative or hospice care.

 

This event is scheduled to commemorate the celebration of World Rare Disease Day, which takes place on the last day in February each year.  Did you know?

  • There are over 7,000 rare diseases in the world
  • Rare disease affects 1 in 10 Americans
  • More than 50% of rare diseases affect children
  • 30% of children diagnosed with rare and genetic disorders don't live to see their 3rd birthday 

During this complicated time, families struggle to obtain expensive medical and therapy equipment designed to provide safety to these children and to improve the quality of their lives.   The Little Miss Hannah Foundation provides this equipment at no cost to the families to enhance the quality of life of their children.  Meet some of our special kids!

 

Please join us for a fantastic race while we raise funds and awareness for childhood rare diseases!
