Chunky Monkey run for epilepsy research

Posted:

ARGYLE (WKOW) -- It's a race with a fun name, but serious message. The Chunky Monkey Epilepsy Run is coming up November 2rd.

Mandy Koch says it's in memory of her little "chunky monkey" her son Mathias, who died in 2010 from epilepsy. The full time mom, day care provider and student is now dedicated to raising money for pediatric epilepsy care and research.

The Chunky Monkey run is at Yellowstone Golf Course, just outside of Argyle. This year's event features a 5K run, children's race and other family-focused activities.

All proceeds will be donated to UW Children's Hospital to help with pivotal research on pediatric epilepsy. For information on signing up can be found here on their facebook page.
