Join us for the first inaugural 5k as we hope, fight and RACE to cure facial pain!

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 to relieve pain which is oftentimes unsuccessful.  Our goal is to raise awareness and money to help fund research to find a cure.
