For this event The Virtual Run Challenge has directly partnered with ComplexTruths Inc. to help bring awareness and to help for a cure for what is known as one of the most painful diseases in the world.
It is a disease of the NERVOUS SYSTEMS (Central, Sympathetic, Enteric & Autonomous) that can happen to any one, after any injury, at any time. CRPS is more common in women over 40 with a history of migraine, or other injuries but affects children (as young as three), and men.
It normally starts after an injury to a limb, such as a sports injury, like tearing an ACL, spraining an ankle, injuring a shoulder or getting elbow surgery – but not always. It can happen after ANY injury to the body, anywhere, including heart attack, stroke, all surgeries of any type, getting poked by a needle or thorn of a rose, or stubbing your toe.
This virtual 5k challenge is set to take place during the month of November which is the national awareness month.
