Description

Show your support for Childhood Rare Disease Awareness and cheer our special VIP children affected by rare diseases at our 5th Annual 5K and 1M run supporting The Little Miss Hannah Foundation (LMHF).  The organization's mission is to help enhance the quality of life for young children diagnosed with rare, life-limiting, or undiagnosed complex medical needs, as well as children who have been placed in hospice or palliative care.  The foundation also gives parents the necessary tools and financial assistance to empower them to meet their child’s unique medical and lifestyle needs, as well as provide support resources and special attention for their other children.  We also work to provide support groups for all members of the family by providing fun, family-focused and sibling-focused events and activities.

The Vegas Cares About Rare event is scheduled on February 20, 2021, to coincide with World Rare Disease Day, raising awareness to the millions of people affected by a rare disease. 


Did you know:



  • There are over 7,000 rare diseases in the world

  • Rare disease affects 1 in 10 Americans

  • More than 50% of rare diseases affect children

  • 30% of children diagnosed with rare and genetic disorders don't live to see their 3rd birthday 

  • 55% of families will incur direct medical expenses not covered by insurance. 


Many times, families affected by rare disease struggle to obtain expensive medical and therapy equipment designed to provide safety to these children and to improve the quality of their lives. The Little Miss Hannah Foundation provides this equipment at no cost to the families to enhance the quality of life of their children. Meet some of our special kids at our event!
