Battling Batten Disease: 5K Run & Family Walk
Join BDSRA at the Battling Batten Disease 5K in Columbus Ohio!
First organized in 2009, the Battling Batten Disease 5K (formerly Celia's Walk) is the result of efforts by Central Ohioans to raise awareness and financial support for research for Batten disease.
Touched by the story of a local family's journey with their daughter Celia, coworkers at the Wexner Medical Center's Medical Intensive Care Unit decided to organize a large-scale fundraiser. All registration fees and contributions are donated directly to the Batten Disease Support and Research Association. The walk has grown to now include apparel sales and a substantial raffle, where donated items last year included a hot air balloon ride, a photography session, and theater tickets.
