DO IT FOR DECLAN
ANNUAL 5K AND FUN RUN

ABOUT OUR EVENT

Sink017_edited.jpg

With your help, we can find a cure for Sanfilippo syndrome. Each December, we come together to raise awareness and financial support for critical research. Our event is called Do it for Declan because we do it all for him and other children suffering from Sanfilippo. Most people have never even heard of Sanfilippo. You are already spreading awareness by signing up for our event. You have now heard of this disease and hopefully you will tell others. All proceeds from our mile fun run and 5K go directly to the non-profit Cure Sanfilippo Foundation. Your participation is a contribution, an action, and hope. We are racing for a cure.
