Early bird registration is now open for Run3for30, an event designed to raise awareness for brain injuries and the rehabilitation process in honor of Brett Greenwood.
Run3for30 will be held on September 15, nearly two years since Brett collapsed from an abnormal heart rhythm during a routine workout, which caused his heart to stop and result in an anoxic brain injury. Brett has made great strides in his recovery and we’ve all learned much about what it means to simply survive a brain injury, something that 95,000 Iowans are currently living with today – visit the Brain Injury Alliance of Iowa to learn more. The rehabilitation process requires tremendous support, perseverance and patience. Luckily Brett is surrounded by a strong network of health care professionals, family, friends and people who simply remember watching him compete at Kinnick Stadium. That outpouring of support for Brett truly has made a difference in his recovery.
We know people want to see Brett and hear from him, to show their love and support. Right now, giving Brett the opportunity to concentrate on his own body and daily therapy, as he works toward the next stage in the recovery process has been the one and only goal.
Run3for30 is the brainstorm of Lindsey Brezenski, Brett’s sister and an avid runner, and is designed as a Trail Run and Walk. You don’t have to be a runner to participate. It will be held at Crow Creek Cross Country Course in Bettendorf, Iowa.
The course is full of scenic trees and landscape. The first mile is all grass winding through the west and north ends of the park. The 2nd mile is mainly run on a crushed limestone path through the woods on the eastern part of Crow Creek Park. The 3rd mile is a challenging finish back on grass beginning with a nice downhill to get momentum built for the final 1/2 mile that includes 2 challenging hills. After climbing the final hill it is about .1 mile to the finish across the flat open field near the start of the race.
Thank you to the many volunteers who have already donated their time and energy to Run3for30. The early bird registration fee is $27.00 and will cover the entry fee, chip-timed race, t-shirt, green wristband and food/beverages after the run.
