We are excited to be entering our third year honoring and remembering Brett. It is our mission to raise awareness for SUDEP and save a life. Your $35 registration gift to enter this run/walk will cover your entrance fee, commemorative race t-shirt, special edition Brett's band, race bib, and commemorative race medal. SWAG bags graciously provided by Lisa Sapenaro Real Estate! Event will also provide water and snacks along the race route and home base.


Registration cost is the same this year whether you choose to participate in our 5K option or challenge your skills and push through a 10K!


For those who are unable to attend physically we are happy to have you participate with us virtually! With your registration of $35 we will happily ship (if unable to hand deliver) your commemorative race t-shirt, gorgeous customized race medal PLUS special edition Brett's band and bib.


Check out our SWAG Shop here online (this will be a work of love that we are hopeful to grow annually) We will ship out added items to our virtual participants.


A portion of ALL ticket proceeds will go directly to further local and national efforts to end SUDEP.


Our Story


On December 21, 2019 our lives were shattered when we discovered that our youngest son, Brett, had died in his sleep due to a "rare" complication of epilepsy. Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) claims more victims than SIDS annually yet it is never spoken of in our medical community. Most families who suffer this loss report that they "were never told about SUDEP." It is our hope that through education and prevention we can save a life. 


Find us on Facebook at Brett's Bands for SUDEP Awareness and join us on October 1st as we run/walk to remember Brett and all the other victims of SUDEP and make a difference for others who suffer from epilepsy!


Thank you so much for the time you are giving us and joining us in this mission.
