Join in for Bellevue’s 2019 Run for Aidan
The 14th Annual Run for Aidan is on Saturday, August 24th 2019 and located at Wilburton Park in Bellevue.
Events include a Kids’ Dash, Mens/Boys 5k run, Women/Girls 5k run and a 1 mile walk, AND a bake sale! Support our Bellevue friends, teachers, XC coaches as our community raises funds to help Aidan Leffler treat and fight Duchenne Muscular Dystropy.
Mounting Medical Costs
Aidan is the son of past Newport high school cross country and track coaches, Mitch and Mindy Leffler. The Bellevue community has been participating in this event to benefit Aidan for 14 years and our efforts are still needed to show the Lefflers we are with them and that we can all know togther we are stronger. All registration fees from the run/walk go to Aidan’s medical care and expenses, which are substantial.
Aidan’s is an amazing young man and strong in mind and spirit, even though he has Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This form of muscular dystrophy causes muscle degeneration and weakness in those that it affects. There is no treatment available to fight the disease. However, as his muscles continue to atrophy, he and his family fight back, which in turn is helping other families who are affected by Duchennes. He’s currently on some therapies that are working well to keep him strong, and his family is passionate about finding effective treatment. This run and walk exists to support such treatments and costs.
Having Fun While Giving Back
Aidan is an incredibly smart kid who loves soccer and is a light to others, wherever he goes. This race provides Cummins Chiropractic with a small way to try and give back. Our office participates by running the race and encourages our patients and community members to join in and help out!
This is your opportunity to live your ideal 100 Year Lifestyle. With a kids dash, one mile walk, 5k run, cheer, volunteer, bake sale, dogs and strollers welcome…… there is something for everyone. The whole Cummins Clan will be there and we hope you’ll join in on the fun!
