Join us for the 3rd Annual Race AgainsTNerve Pain event as we Hope, Fight, and RACE to cure facial pain!

Due to social distancing guidelines still in place related to COVID-19 this years run will be a VIRTUAL race.  The health and well-being of our participants is our main priority.  We are hopeful to be back in person in 2022!

Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) is described as the worst pain known to mankind and is often referred to as the suicide disease. TN is characterized by attacks of intense, stabbing pain that affects the mouth, cheek, nose or other areas on one side of the face. The pain can be excruciating and debilitating. While some people are fortunate enough to find some relief from medication, many resort to surgery to try and relieve pain which is often unsuccessful. Our goal is to raise awareness and money to help fund research to find a cure.
