Rachel’s Race for Long QT Syndrome

October 13 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

| $25

In memory of Rachel Lancour who died suddenly in her sleep on at age 22. Genetic testing revealed she had Long QT Syndrome (LQTS), a heart rhythm disorder that claims the lives of 4,000 children and young adults annually. In many of these cases, the first symptom is sudden death. The proceeds of this event will go to LQTS research, to improve understanding of LQTS, early recognition and treatment; and to enhance local emergency response capabilities to sudden cardiac arrest. About 1 in 2,500 people in the U.S. have LQTS. The 5K and 10K runs will take place on scenic country roads. The one mile walk will take place on the Skelly Farm with family activity stations along the route. Results will be posted online. Age bracket awards. Registrations received by October 1 will be guaranteed a tech shirt. More information and a link to the registration website can be found at : RACHELSLONGQT.COM
