Kickin’ Kawasaki 5K – is a family friendly, kid-oriented race/walk dedicated to growing awareness and raising money for Kawasaki Disease.
The race has a theme of “kool socks” so racers and volunteers will be encouraged to dress up their socks to show support of KD!
Kawasaki Disease (KD) is a serious illness characterized by inflammation of blood vessels throughout the body that primarily affects young children and infants. Kawasaki Disease is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in children. Without treatment, about 25% of children develop heart disease involving the coronary arteries. Timely diagnosis and treatment (which includes intravenous gamma globulin) is highly effective in preventing coronary complications.
