The 5K Run/Walk for Elle is planned for Saturday, September 24, 2016 at Newbury Park High School. Event starts at 8 a.m.
On Tuesday August 2nd, 2016, Elle Bolton, a local mom/wife/sister and friend suffered a brain aneurysm which caused a stroke and resulted in loss of motor function and sensation on the left side of her body.
After several days in ICU she has moved to a regular room at Los Robles Hospital. Since then she has been discharged to an inpatient stroke rehab facility locally. Her neurologist said her prognosis is good since the stroke was caught so early. The plan will be for her to be at the stroke rehab facility for 2 - 4 weeks.
After that she will be released to come back home and resume regular physical therapy as needed. But during this time her and her family are in great need and it is our job as a community to help them.
On Saturday, September 24, 2016 the Jewel Levine Foundation will host this 5k run/walk, proceeds of which go directly to the Bolton family.
