Race Information

5K to Fight Histio is a fundraising event that has been held in NYC the past 10 years and finally coming to CO! This event brings families together from all over the globe to support each other and increase awareness of Histiocytosis, a rare blood disorder that all too often goes misdiagnosed leading to fatalities. Proceeds from this fundraiser go to support The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern CO and the mission of Liam's Lighthouse Foundation.

Liam passed away from complications of a bone marrow transplant for HLH at only 20 months old. He had been misdiagnosed for over 10 months. His mother started LLF shortly after his passing in 2009 and is continuing the fight he no longer could. With a board of 100% volunteers, LLF has been able to increase awareness of this disease world-wide and provide research grants to leading research institutions as well as support other histio families. For more information about LLF, go to www.liamslighthousefoundation.org.
