How Race the Helix® was started
"Our daughter, Ryleigh, was diagnosed with a rare chromosomal deletion shortly after she was born in 2010. Since we received her diagnosis, the Greenwood Genetic Center has become part of our family. They made certain that we did not feel alone, and they continue to provide ongoing, compassionate care for our child. The impact they have had on our family and others across the globe everyday is immeasurable. We can't imagine walking this journey without their guidance and support.
Because of the amazing things they have done for us, and the impact their compassion has had on our family, we started Race the Helix. It is a 5K race and 1 mile run/walk to support their mission - to do our part to make their vision of providing treatments and cures for families impacted by genetic conditions a reality. Through Race the Helix, we hope to raise awareness for GGC, rare genetic disorders and families on the same path as ours."
