Action for Aidan is a professionally-timed 5K trail run/walk through the beautiful trails of Stratham Hill Park designed to raise money for Hunter Syndrome research. Aidan is an 8-year-old boy from Stratham, NH who has Hunter Syndrome and needs your help to find a cure!
Hunter Syndrome (MPSII) is a rare, progressive, and fatal genetic disorder. Boys with this disease are born lacking a critical enzyme that clears cellular waste from their bodies. Children appear normal at birth, but as the cellular waste accumulates enlarged skulls, heart defects, difficulty breathing, joint contractures, hydrocephalus, nerve conduction disease, enlarged organs, hearing loss, recurrent infections, and more issues develop.
All money raised from this event will go to the non-profit organization Saving Case and Friends – the Project Alive Campaign – to support ongoing genetic research by Dr. McCarthy and Dr. Fu and Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
All donations are tax deductible.
