On July 14, 2014, Ellie Helton finished her first day of high school and fell ill. After being rushed to WakeMed Raleigh, and then UNC Children’s Hospital, Ellie eventually succumbed to complications brought on by a ruptured brain aneurysm. To honor her memory, the family initiated the Ellie Helton Memorial 5K and Fun Run with all proceeds from the race going to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.

The Department of Neurosurgery and the Stroke team have participated in this event since its inception and we would love to have others from UNC come out and support the family and the cause. The Brain Aneurysm Foundation recently awarded Deanna Sasaki-Adams, MD a $40,000 research grant so your donations may directly benefit UNC in the future.
