Rare Sisters brought together a community of over 1,000 supporters on Sunday, April 28 for the fund’s first-ever Expect Miracles 5K. Participants were treated to a beautiful Colorado Spring day at Lake Arbor in Arvada, where runners and families enjoyed a whole host of outdoor activities as well as a crowdsourced art project and local vendor fair. The event raised nearly $40,000 to support juvenile Batten disease research, advancing us closer to a clinical trial and viable treatment. Thank you to all the runners (present and virtual), supporters, sponsors, and volunteers who came together to make the first annual Expect Miracles 5K a tremendous success. Special thanks and recognition to Beth Fries, mother and co-founder of Rare Sisters, who organized the Expect Miracles 5k and inspired good among so many.
