Hoofbeats 5K

IMG_2966.JPG

This event is to benefit the NH EDS Coalition. Our goal is for NH folks living with EDS to be diagnosed sooner, receive better care, and maintain a good quality of life. Why the Zebra? Medical students are taught to think horses (common illnesses), not zebras (rare illnesses), when they hear hoofbeats (symptoms). The result is that folks with rare diseases are frequently undiagnosed or misdiagnosed because physicians are looking for the most common cause of symptoms. This leads to further pain and disability during the years it takes for an accurate diagnosis. The peculiar thing is that EDS are likely not rare, but rarely diagnosed.

Timeline:  Same day registration begins at 7:30am. The gun will go off at 9:00am. Kids' Fun Run starts at 9:45am. Awards at 10:00am. Awesome raffle to follow.  

Awards: Top 2 male & female overall; Top 2 male & female in each of the following age groups - 14 & under, 14-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+; special category because physical therapy is a crucial treatment for EDS: Top 2 male & female employed at a physical therapy office!
