FEROCIOUS FIGHTERS FUN RUN
Friday, November 16th - Sunday, November 25th
Ferocious Fighters exists to bring comfort and community to kids battling Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). This incredibly painful neurological pain disorder is characterized by extreme pain and is known as "The Suicide Disease" due to the incredibly intense nerve pain that is ongoing and without a cure. CRPS, also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), Reflex Neurovascular Dystrophy (RND), and Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain Syndrome (AMPS), is the worst chronic pain known to man with pain that is more intense than giving birth unprepared or having a finger amputated without anesthesia! Ferocious Fighters is dedicated to making sure that young people (ages 0-21) and their families know that they are not alone in their battle. They do this by providing regular communications, social media peer networks, and by sending cards, newsletters and care packages to provide encouragement. Both their slogan, "We Will NOT let CRPS Win!" and hashtag, #TakeThatCRPS make it clear that Ferocious Fighters is dedicated to helping empower kids, teens, and young adults (and their families) to live life despite the obstacles!
You too can help these kids and their families by running, walking, rolling (or any other activity that works for you) in the inaugural Ferocious Fighters Fun Run. A virtual run of 1 mile (or 1 hour activity), 3.1 miles/5K (or 3 hours activity), or 6.2 miles/10K (or 6 hours activity)- your choice. Each participant will receive our awesome looking Ferocious Fighters Phoenix Medal, and the ribbon color will signify your distance completed (white for 1 mile, black for 3.1 miles, and orange for 6.2 miles). No need to pre-select your distance/time. Just sign up for the virtual race and submit your distance/time completed. The correct medal and ribbon will be sent based upon your submissions.
Best of all, because this is a "VIRTUAL" event, you can do the run anywhere, at any time that fits your schedule between November 16-November 25, 2018. You can do it all at once or in small increments over multiple days to reach your goal. And you can do it as fast or slow as you want. The choices are all yours!
Add an optional Ferocious Fighters 2018 Shirt to your registration for only $20.00/$22.50 XXL. Wear it to bring awareness to the disease and in support of those battling CRPS.
Ferocious Fighters is an all volunteer, non-profit and all proceeds will be used to support Ferocious Fighters ongoing care packages and support programs.
