Description:

Join us at Hudson Gardens in Littleton, Colorado on May 22, 2021 for the 12th Annual STOMP Out Epilepsy and SUDEP Awareness Walk/Run. We will host a self-timed 5K run, in addition to a Family Fun Walk.

With Arapahoe County being in "blue" level and the fact that Hudson Gardens has reached their 5 Star Rating, we will not be limited on the number of guests. We will, however, practice social distancing as recommended. We ask that you select a wave because at this time, to help maintain social distancing, we will be releasing walkers at both 9:00 AM and at 9:30 AM . We would appreciate your registering children under 6 as well so we can get an accurate count. There is no charge for children 6 and under, unless you'd like a tshirt for them.

We will be  hosting a dove release to honor those who have left too soon. The release will take place at 9:00 and even if you are walking later, you are more than welcome to come and watch.  If you are walking in memory of a family member, please let us know so that we can include you in this remembrance.

Walk Day Registration is $35 Adult (13 and up) and $20 Children (7-12). No pets/dogs allowed. Service dogs are welcomed and encouraged. Check-in and walkup registration begin at 7:30 AM, walk/run start at 9:00 AM.

Funds raised through this event provide funding for fully-trained seizure-response dogs, life-saving movement monitors for those in need and grant wish trips to Epilepsy Awareness Expo and Day at Disneyland.

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.

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 140 seizure-response dog grants and has provided well over 1,000 life-saving night-time and day-time movement monitors for those in need.  We have awarded 102 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
