As parents, family members, friends, and concerned citizens in this community, let us all be brave and support the Brizzee family in their recent discovery of their daughter, Avery’s rare and terminal diagnosis of MPS III, or mucopolysaccharide disease, also known as Sanfilippo syndrome.
We have seen Avery featured in many local and national news sources, including East Idaho News and Post Register, among many others.
We live in an amazing community that is BRAVE along with us! We are looking forward to the fundraiser 5k and 10k race called Premier Therapy Bravery 4 Avery. This race will take place at Snake River Landing on September 24, 2022 at 900 am. We have three goals that we want to accomplish: 1: raise $10,000 to help cover medical expenses, 2: to show the Brizzee family that the East Idaho community supports and loves them, and 3: educating the community on this obscure disease.
Event details and schedule
We are anticipating 90+ runners tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is good good news, we anticipated between 75-90 runners. We preordered medals and shirts to meet those needs in order to save money and not overbuy, thereby making us less capable of maximizing funds raised for Avery Brizzee's family. Therefore, we will present "finishing certificates" to those who complete the 5k and 10k races if and when we run out of medals, then will put in a second order to Kristi's Keepsakes.
Regarding shirts, if you have registered on Active.com before 4pm Friday, 9-23, there will be a shirt included with the race price. But we will be putting in a second order to Teton Graphics. If registration occurs after that time, an extra $10 will be charged if you want a shirt.
Additionally: we have 116 bibs with timing chips in them, limited by the timing company. However, we still have timing chips without bibs. We are still capable of registering you, but will potentially be using 'custom made' bibs (hand written).
Race sign up: now till race day with $25 for 5k and $35 for 10k. Same day registration will be same cost, but if you want a T-Shirt it will be an extra $10.
Now till September 10: Race register if you want to get a race shirt in your size. All who sign up before 4pm Friday, 9-23-22 will get a race TShirt, but late packet pick up may need to wait for a couple of weeks till the second batch is completed.
