Course description:

We will be offering a Family Fun Walk and a 5K Run/Walk.

 
Family Fun Walk will start in the Rose Garden (see maps) and will meander out onto the Mary Carter Greenway Trail that runs along side the Platte River.  Once you've exited the park at the coffee shop area, you will head South and follow the trail to the first roundabout.  Circle the roundabout and head back to the North and reenter when you exited. Follow the signs to the finish line.
 
Family 5K Run/Walk will also start in the Rose Garden (see maps) and will meander out onto the Mary Carter Greenway Trail that runs along side the Platte River.  Once you've exited the park at the coffee shop area, you will head North and follow the traill to Belleview where you will exit, walk along side Belleview for a very short distance and reenter the trail on the West side of the Platte River.  At approx. the 2 mile mark, that trail will cross the river and you will follow that trail to the South where you can reenter the park at the coffee shop area and follow signs to the finish line,  This 5K is a self-timed event.

Directions to start:

The Start line is inside the Rose Garden - both the start line and finish line will be marked with a balloon arch.

Plenty of free parking. If you enter the main entrance of Hudson Gardens, there will be small parking lots on both the North and South side of the entrance. Additional parking if you go left at the end of the entrance and follow the road a short distance. Parking is also available across the street at Arapahoe Community College.

About us

The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is a non-profit corporation formed to provide help and support to individuals, particularly children and young adults, who have epilepsy. Chelsea touched many lives during her short 16 years here and we are amazed at how many people she continues to touch through the foundation even after her passing.  Her generous heart longed to see love and care come to others.

In her memory The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is designed to assist people living with Epilepsy.  Funds raised by this Foundation provide grants for seizure-response dogs and epilepsy monitors for those in need, educate the public about SUDEP (Sudden Unexpeccted Death in Epilepsy), and provide support to those who have been affected by SUDEP.  The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation exists to raise awareness of SUDEP and to grant comfort, hope and positivity to individuals and families living with epilepsy.  To date, The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation has had the privilege of providing 157 seizure-response dog grants and has provided well over 1,300 life-saving night-time and day-time movement monitors for those in need.  We have awarded 104 families with wish trips to the one-of-a-kind Epilepsy Awareness Expo and Day at Disneyland. The Expo offers a wealth of information and exposure to professionals, treatment options, education and hope.   

You may ask why we provide grants for these items.  These monitors, while life-saving, are not covered by any insurance companies.  Seizure response service dogs are expensive and most of our families have to raise significant money to obtain one.  Imagine caring for a loved-one with epilepsy 24/7 and being afraid to sleep for fear they might miss a seizure, or worse yet, THAT seizure that is fatal.  Chelsea’s family believes strongly that if they had known to monitor Chelsea at night – and had the means to afford one of these expensive items – their outcome may have been different.  Chelsea’s first nocturnal seizure took her life.

During the 6 years that Chelsea had seizures, no one ever told the Hutchisons that a seizure could take her life other than through an accidental fall or drowning. As a result of that omission, The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation informs those living with epilepsy of the risks and raises awareness of SUDEP so that no other families are blind-sided. For more information, please visit our website at www.ChelseaHutchisonFoundation.org or contact us directly at info@ChelseaHutchisonFoundation.org
