FIGHTING FOR CONNER WITH TARDIGRADE OBSTACLE COURSE RACING
Join us for a day of fun and fitness while we celebrate Conner Beish and International Batten Disease Awareness Day!
In 2017, 4-year old Conner Beish was diagnosed with a rare, and presently terminal disease, known as Batten Disease. It is estimated that 2-4 births per 100,000 in the U.S. are affected by this disease. The Batten Disease Support and Research Association (BDSRA) is an amazing foundation that helps to fund research in order to find treatments for Batten Disease, as well as helping families all over the world as they are coping with this disorder. Proceeds from this race will benefit the BDSRA (https://bdsra.org/).
