Palmetto Bluff, South CarolinaSaturday, January 25, 2014
We are so excited to introduce the Race for Ellie to the Lowcountry - and as a fabulous trail run for a new twist!! The RFE has had huge success as a 5k running event in Columbus, Ohio, raising over $775,000 since 2006 for Mitochondrial Disease (Mito). The race is held in honor of Ellie Kovalcik, a Bluffton resident, who suffers from Mito. Come run to change the course of Mito and enjoy the majestic beauty that is Palmetto Bluff...you don't want to miss this race!!
ALL PROCEEDS support our research at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
Run in one of America's top resort communities. Hidden away among an intricate maze of rivers, islands and maritime forests, Palmetto Bluff’s 20,000 acres remain virtually undisturbed. As the largest waterfront property on the East coast, Palmetto Bluff is evolving as a residential community and conservation preserve. Located in Bluffton, SC between Savannah, GA and Hilton Head Island. All who visit Palmetto Bluff are stunned by its natural beauty – the abundant wildlife, the thriving flora, the undisturbed marshlands and waterways. One look is all it takes to understand why people come here the first time, but it’s our approach to conservation and preservation that explains why people come back time and time again. A full one-third of our 20,000 acres are and will always be completely undisturbed, with the beauty of the Carolina Lowcountry allowed to shine through without homes, shops or any other development.
