2nd Annual Enlightenment 5K to Benefit CurePSP

November 4, 2022 – November 6, 2022 all-day

Join us for the 2nd Annual CurePSP Enlightenment 5K to Benefit CurePSP to raise awareness for corticobasal degeneration (CBD)! 

Last year, the Rutzen family raised over $6,000 to help CurePSP continue its mission of raising awareness, building community, improving care, and finding a cure for PSP, CBD, and MSA.  By participating in this year’s Enlightenment 5K, you are honoring Linda Rutzen while raising funds to support CurePSP’s efforts.  

You are not alone in searching for answers and needing help, guidance, and support.  Join the fight to spread awareness and help find a cure!

This virtual race is 3.1 miles (5K) long and can be done at any point from November 4th through November 6th – either all at once or in a cumulative effort! 


My Mom taught me a lot, but most recently she’s shown me Enlightenment, which is defined as education or awareness that brings change. Today she lives with Corticobasal Degeneration – a rare neurological disease – a terminal disease. This Enlightenment 5k is in her Honor, we must bring CBD into the light as more people face the same uncertain diagnosis. Mom isn’t alone in this. This 5k is intended to reach people across the globe, raise funds for research, to bring us to our Ultimate Goal – a Cure!” – Amanda Rutzen, daughter of Linda
