The 2nd annual Rochester NY Sepsis Challenge 5k and 1k Run and Walk will begin at Center Park, in Fairport, NY on Friday, September 8, 2017. Participants will enjoy the scenery as they run or walk around the park in order to raise awareness of sepsis as a medical emergency.
The Stomp Out Sepsis Rochester 5K is part of the statewide Sepsis Challenge series, a sepsis awareness initiative in Michigan. It is a joint effort by Sepsis Alliance, and volunteer nurses from area health systems. Stomp Out Sepsis is held in memory of Renato Brancaleoni, who passed away from sepsis in 2015. The goal is to raise sepsis awareness in the community, and to raise funds to benefit Sepsis Alliance.
