This is a chip-timed fundraising 5k Run/Walk at the Watts Cross Country Course at TAMU for Elizabeth Schiller and her family on Saturday, May 20th, 2017. The race will take place on the Texas A&M University Cross Country grass course at the Hildebrand Equine Complex.
Elizabeth is a Varsity Cross Country runner at A&M Consolidated High School in College Station, TX who spent 56 days in the PICU at McLane Children’s Hospital in Temple, Texas. All funds raised will be given directly to the Schiller family to aid in medical costs.
Elizabeth (Elle) is a freshman at A&M Consolidated High School. As a freshman, she ran on the varsity cross county team. At the beginning of this year, she became sick with Type B flu, two types of Pneumonia, and an MRSA blood infection. Elle was life-flighted to Temple, Texas where she remained in a coma for almost six weeks. On day 40, Elizabeth finally woke up. Her strong will and determination that she has acquired from the past three years of running is what helped Elle fight through this tough time.
Registration cost is $20 for those 21 years of age or younger and $25 for all those over the age of 21. The race fee includes a commemorative t-shirt and one entry into the raffle.
