Suddenly Sleepy 5K!
March 8, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Narcolepsy is a medical disorder that affects one (1) in approximately every 2,000 people in the United States. Some of Narcolepsy’s key symptoms are excessive daytime sleepiness, sleep attacks, sudden microsleeps, and disrupted nighttime sleep. Andre Royal Sr. has made it his mission to take on Narcolepsy as a cause worth fighting for. This event is a fundraiser to help establish a local non-profit organization and bring support to our community.
The Suddenly Sleepy 5K Sleepwalk was founded in 2018 by “Chef Andre Royal” to raise funds to help those affected by Narcolepsy and various sleep disorders. In 2019 “Suddenly Sleepy” became an Oregon Nonprofit 501 (c)(3) that now provides fun and engaging ways to support educational opportunities and continues to raise awareness of the importance of quality sleep. Lack of quality sleep is becoming much more recognized as it affects not just those who’ve been diagnosed with sleep disorders such as Narcolepsy- but is important to the overall health and wellness of the community as a whole.
