Ghosts & Goblins & Monsters, OH MY! Don’t let the ghosts and goblins scare you from running this October! Join us for the 2nd annual Monster Run on October 18, 2014 benefiting Razor Sharp Minds Foundation, a foundation to defeat Alzheimer's. This Wicked Quarter Marathon, Goose Bump Filled 5.5K and Frightfully Fun Kids’ Run will have your whole family running through the scenic Whitnall Park in your most creative Halloween costume (optional). Timing prizes will be awarded for top runners in the Quarter Marathon and 5.5K, along with prizes for the best costumes.

This family friendly event will also feature a Kids’ Run, Family Fun Area with games such as bobbing for apples and pumpkin painting. Quarter Marathon and 5.5K finishers will receive a wicked finishers medal and an awesome tech t-shirt! After the race sit back and enjoy the festive scenery with devilishly delicious post-race treats and witches brew (aka beer), for registered participants over 21, and other!

Monster Run will also be collecting food donations for Feeding America, so bring non-perishable food items to Packet Pick-Up!

Charity Partners

Razor Sharp Minds Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded on the belief that a cure can be found for Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. To this end, Razor Sharp Minds supports direct scientific research, and endeavors that educate the public about Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia and the benefits a healthy lifestyle has on the mind. Razor Sharp Minds focuses on regional efforts to find a cure, including research and clinical practice efforts that support and encourage important aspects of life affected by Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, so that donations have an impact in the Midwest.

Razor Sharp Minds understands that, while significant scientific discoveries and advances have been made, the adverse effects of Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia on our daily lives is palpable. Whether it is a close family member, friend, or acquaintance, it seems everyone knows someone who has suffered or is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease or some form of dementia. We seek to educate the public about the how healthy lifestyle habits can counteract, or at least delay, the onset of dementia. Razor Sharp Minds supports and encourages many important aspects of life affected by Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, including development of improved therapies for those living with the disease and overall healthier lifestyles that have been shown to stave off or counteract memory loss. Over 90% of donations to Razor Sharp Minds support direct scientific research and Foundation educational programs. Please visit RazorSharpMinds.org to learn more, and to donate online!
