Mothers' Day/We Care 5K
Brookfield High School's National Honor Society presents
The Mothers' Day / 8th Annual We Care 5K
May 12, 2019
at BROOKFIELD HIGH SCHOOL
Proceeds to benefit research for PANS/PANDAS in honor of the Tong family.
PANS stands for Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome. This is an autoimmune disorder that occurs very suddenly in children. PANS occurs when an infectious trigger, environmental factors, and other possible triggers create a misdirected immune response resulting in inflammation on a child’s brain. In turn, the child quickly begins to exhibit life changing symptoms such as OCD, severe restrictive eating, anxiety, tics, personality changes, decline in math and handwriting abilities, sensory sensitivities, and more.
PANS/PANDAS is a newly diagnosed syndrome, and lots of research is still being done in pursuit of a cure, and the Brookfield chapter of NHS wishes to help raise money to aid in that pursuit.
