Join your AE Community on March 3rd!

February 8, 2018

Come join your AE community at the annual Florence Forth Road Race and AE Family Lunch on March 3, 2018 in Durham, NC.

It’s a chance for AE survivors to join together and share stories.  The center piece of the weekend is a walk/run on Saturday morning called Florence Forth. Then after the walk/run is an AE Family Lunch for all to gather together.

It’s not too late to join.  There are three ways to participate: sign up to run or walk Florence Forth, sign up for the family lunch , and create a fundraising team.

The race is named in memory of Florence McDow, who wore a pink cape while she bravely battled AE. That’s why Florence Forth’s logo is a caped runner. When you participate, you’re a hero to those AE families that you are helping.

The theme of Florence Forth is Capes are Optional. Doing Good Isn’t. You don’t have to wear a cape to be a hero. And you definitely don’t have to wear one while running Florence Forth, though you can! Having battled AE, either personally, as a family member or as a friend, you have worn your own personal cape many times.

All monies raised by the race  are used to connect patients, educate medical professionals, and fund research toward better treatments and a cure. Discoveries are being made every year and we are hopeful for the future.
