A 5k/ 1 mile fun run for a rare disease called Sarcoidosis. It is a disease that can attack any organ in your body. It is what they call a silent disease. You don't look sick from the outside but are very sick inside.
At McCarthy's Pub 2582 Middle Country Rd Centereach, NY 11720. There
will be entertainment, refreshments, food and vendor tables, as well as an auction of signed sports memorabilia. Fun for
all! Sarcoidosis (pronounced SAR-COY-DOE-SIS) is an inflammatory disease
that can affect almost any organ in the body. It causes heightened
immunity, which means that a person’s immune system, which normally
protects the body from infection and disease, overreacts, resulting in
damage to the body’s own tissues. PLEASE ALL JOIN AND HELP US FIGHT THIS
DISEASE THAT HAS NO KNOWN CAUSE OR CURE!!
