4th Annual Ellie Helton Memorial 5K and Fun Run Event

October 13, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Drs. Resident MDs Loewenstein, Barnett, Piazza at the Ellie Helton 5K

Ellie HeltonOn July 14, 2014, Ellie Helton finished her first day of high school and fell ill. After being rushed to WakeMed Raleigh, and then UNC Children’s Hospital, Ellie eventually succumbed to complications brought on by a ruptured brain aneurysm. To honor her memory, the family initiated the Ellie Helton Memorial 5K and Fun Run with all proceeds from the race going to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.

The Department of Neurosurgery has participated in this event since its inception and we encourage others to come out and support the family and the cause. Last year, the Brain Aneurysm Foundation awarded Neurosurgeon Deanna Sasaki-Adams, MD a $40,000 research grant so your donations may directly benefit UNC in the future.
