Mitchell Thorp Foundation (MTF) today announced their largest fundraiser of the year - their annual 5K Run/Walk - will take place on February 1, 2020 at Poinsettia Park in Carlsbad. MTF helps families with children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions with financial, emotional and resource support. Each year, a quarter of a million children in the United States, including more than an estimated 2,000 children in San Diego County, are diagnosed with these types of conditions. The annual 5K Run/Walk will once again be themed around these Warrior Children who fight for their lives daily. “Nothing is more powerful than seeing the Warrior Spirit in these children as they battle every day,” noted MTF Co-Founder and CEO, Brad Thorp. “That is why this day is so powerful – seeing the community come together and show their own ‘Warrior Spirit’ and help the families in their desperate situations.” “Bring Out The Warrior Within to Help a Warrior Child” will set the stage for the 5K, which will feature a chip-timed race for runners and a beautiful park loop for walkers. A kids’ obstacle course with great prizes, a patriotic sky dive demonstration, live music, and food will add to this incredible day for the entire family. The funds raised from the event will benefit the families who find themselves in these situations.
