Very excited to announce that the American 5K Run/Walk will again be held on Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday, May 28. Last year‘s inaugural race was a great success as a benefit for Lt. Dan Berschinski. I got to meet Dan in October 2009 when he was recovering at Walter Reed.  I was in DC speaking before Congress about FOP. This year, the proceeds in honor of me, go to the IFOPA.

The International FOP Association (IFOPA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supporting medical research, education and communication for those afflicted by the rare genetic condition Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP). Our mission is to eliminate FOP as a health concern through education, advocacy, research and support.  April 26, 2006 the FOP gene was discovered.  We are now just waiting for the cure!  We need your help! 

Thanks to the Peachtree City Running Club, Carolyn Gulick, the Berschinski's, and everyone else involved to make this event great and successful!
