Ellie Helton Memorial 5K

A race to remember a special girl that tragically passed away at just 14 years old from a brain aneurysm. There is the option to participate as a competitive runner or a recreational runner. Costumes are encouraged in honor of Ellie. She was a fan of the color pink, superheroes, Minions, Greek mythology, Harry Potter, Hunger Games and Reese’s Cups.


Ellie Helton, a vibrant, loving 14-year old, passed away on July 16, 2014 as a result of a brain aneurysm. Ellie loved God, her family and friends, superheroes, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and pizza. She was a unique spirit who loved life, was accepting of others and persevered in everything she tried.

This year the event will be raising funds to support the Chair of Research in Honor of Ellie Helton to help the Foundation in their mission to promote early detection of brain aneurysms by providing knowledge and raising awareness of the signs, symptoms and risk factors. Work with the medical communities to provide support networks for patients and families, as well as to further research that will improve patient outcomes and save lives.
