A "Life for Elisa" and "Strides for Sophie" are fundraising teams participating to support the SCRF, which is the only Canadian charity raising money to find a treatment for Sanfilippo Syndrome. Sanfilippo is a terminal illness that affects only children. This condition stops normal development, causing hyperactivity, sleep disorders, loss of speech, dementia, and finally death in mid teens.
Please join one of the SCRF teams this fall and be a runner or walker in the 5K, Half Marathon and Full Marathon events.
Sophie Hamza and Elisa Linton plan to complete the event walk again this year. Whether dressed in Sophie's bee regalia or wearing Elisa's rose, we will join together in hope for the future.
Come meet the challenge — for Sanfilippo children, and for life!
