Ethan'r Run, which occurs tomorrow at Heritage Lake, is still accepting entries! Take time to help others, as well as help yourself, by participating in this fun and healthy event for the whole family. Call Menifee Athletic Club for details!
Ethan Skidmore was diagnosed with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome at 19 weeks gestation. His parents were told he would be lucky if he was carried to term and would
face a series of open-heart surgeries and ultimately a heart transplant to survive. Ethan was carried to term and seemed to always beat the odds. Ethan’s congenital heart
defect proved to be far worse than anticipated and he suffered from before birth with complications in his lungs as well. Ethan and his family taught so many of us through
their experience how to face life’s trials with faith and endurance. Ethan’s tired little heart gave out on him at 6 months of age but he continues to touch the lives of so many
individuals and other heart families through Ethan’s Run (Arizona) and now in California!
With the help of Menifee Valley Athletic Club and Day Spa Ethan’s Run, California will take place on April 30, 2011 within the Community of Heritage Lake in Menifee.
Ethan’s run, California is a certified, chip timed 10K with a 1 mile family fun run (not timed). All proceeds will benefit Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital’s Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit.
In an effort to “Keeping Menifee Fit” there will also be a health expo from 8:00-12:00
with local health care providers, fitness professionals, healthy food sales as well as local businesses selling products.
We are so excited to reaching out to our community to spread awareness regarding
Congenital heart defects, helping heart families in our communities. We also hope to
educate our friends and neighbors regarding leading healthier lifestyles, promoting
health and preventing illness and disease. With the help and support of local businesses
and residents, we look forward to making Ethan’s Run, California yearly event.
Thank you to Menifee Valley Athletic Club and Day Spa for helping us bring Ethan’s Run
