5th Annual 1M/5K/10K Paces for Payton
Fundraiser Race
April 28, 2018 09:00 AM - 09:00 AM
Paces for Payton was originally started to help a local Idaho Falls family whose beautiful daughter Payton, at the age of 7 months, began having symptoms of respiratory distress and excessive sweating. She was taken to the local ER and was found to be in heart failure and had to be transported via Life Flight to Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was determined that she had idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. Payton's case was so severe the only way to save her life was to receive a heart transplant but unfortunately she was not strong enough to wait the time it would take on the heart transplant list. Within days of being admitted to the Cardiac ICU she was placed on a LVAD (left ventricular assistive device) to help her heart continue to keep her alive until a donor heart was available. Associated costs for her care approached $3 million and continued to grow.

Time: 9:00 AM
Cost: Adults-$20, 12 and Under-$20, Family (Up to 5 people)-$80
