Wednesday October 4, 2017 CrossFit Stapleton – Denver, CO

CALLING ALL HANDS ON DECK! 

On behalf of the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance, we are requesting your support of our local Step Forward to Cure TSC CrossFit WOD.

Tuberous Sclerosis Complex is a rare genetic disease that affects approximately 800 individuals in the state of Colorado.  Though rare, it is the leading genetic cause of autism and epilepsy.  Stanley Marketplace will be hosting the Rocky Mountain Region’s TSC event this year for the first time!

The event will be at the Stanley Marketplace on Saturday, October 7th  at 10 am and we expect a few hundred participants. 

We would love your support (in the form of goods, money or gift cards) to make this WOD a success, and so we can grow into a destination race that raises $100,000 or more each year.

Last year we raised $20,000 at Central Park in Stapleton.

And here’s a little info on TSC:

Our team is participating in LIDS Step Forward to Cure TSC. We choose to fight for the 1 in 6,000 kids born with TSC every day, 50,000 in the U.S., over 1 million worldwide. TSC is more common than Lou Gehrig’s disease and Cystic Fibrosis. And there is no cure. Yet!

Ours is a story of determination. Our stunningly small group of parents, through sheer will and passion, have brought this disease to the brink of a breakthrough. We are joined in our fight by aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, grandparents and friends, co-workers and colleagues. We’re asking you to join us in the fight to find a cure! Please help support our family who have refused to give up, refused to take no for an answer, even when faced with the daily challenges of seizures, autism, ADHD, facial disfiguration, anxiety, behavioral problems, and medical complications.

We’re making HUGE strides in finding a cure for TSC. Here’s what we know now that we didn’t know just two short years ago: TSC is what’s called a “linchpin” disease. The genetic pathway involved in TSC is the same pathway affecting over a dozen major diseases and disorders, including autism, epilepsy, cancer, and obesity. We’ve got a long way to go, but recent clinical trials of a new drug actually show the symptoms of autism disappearing in mice. We’re in a race against time and our resources are strained beyond their limits!

We are participating in 2017 LIDS Step Forward to Cure TSC. Please support our fight by joining me and helping to break the back of this horrific disorder.
