Jackie Clark's Endurance Race
Western States 100 Mile Endurance Race

Saturday, June 25, 2016

As most of you know my daughter, Sage, has epilepsy.  Every step of my journey during Western States 100 is going to be in her honor. I will fight and endure just like she does every day of her life. I will not only be running for my daughter but everyone out there who suffers from this deadly disease.

More people die of epilepsy a year than from breast cancer yet there is hardly any new advances in research for this. I am trying to raise money in hopes of finding a cure for Sage and others who are affected by this terrible condition.
