What: Alissa’s 5K and Play All Day Benefit, a fundraiser for a “bright little girl with Cerebral Palsy.”
Where: Enka High School, 475 Enka Lake Road, in Candler.
When: Saturday, Nov. 6, at 10 a.m. ($25 suggested donation for the 5K/$10 for the fun run/$5 for general admission)
Why: Bring the whole family and rally in support for Alissa, “a bright-eyed, heart-stealing 4-year-old girl with the drive, determination and desire to live and function as any other child,” as stated on allissaslittleway.com. “Although walking, running, jumping, playing ball, sliding and swinging are just some of the things she would love to do on her own; in Alissa’s world she is trapped inside her frail little body restricted by Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy and Reactive Airway Disease.”
Alissa’s 5K and Play All Day Benefit will feature a 5K race starting a 10 a.m., a 1-mile fun run at 11 a.m., live music, bouncy houses and castles for children of all ages, and family-friendly games. Runners will receive a T-shirt. All proceeds from the 5K and fun run will help Allisa’s family curb the cost of medical treatments.
