Step on Sepsis 5K

Cary, NC Jun 2 9:00 am - Jun 2 12:00 pm
Join fellow sepsis awareness advocates on June 2 at WakeMed Soccer Park for a 5K walk and run. Sepsis takes over 258,000 American lives a year yet only 58% of American adults even know the word sepsis. The mission of Sepsis Alliance is to save lives and reduce suffering by raising awareness of sepsis as a medical emergency. All funds raised will go directly towards education and awareness programs implemented by Sepsis Alliance.
 
Step On Sepsis was first started by Jerry Minore's Coventry friends and neighbors in Cary, N.C. Jerry had died of sepsis and the friends and neighbors wanted to raise sepsis awareness while honoring his memory. The inaugural event was held on March 23, 2014. With almost 200 people registered, the event raised over $15,000 for sepsis awareness.
