Shining a Light on Acrania and Anencephaly
Welcome to the Luca Hill Acrania and Anencephaly Foundation
The Luca Hill Acrania and Anencephaly Foundation is dedicated to the families and communities affected by Acrania and Anencephaly. Our mission is to create an environment for families, communities, and medical professionals to seek accurate information on Acrania and Anencephaly, find a wealth of support, understand the joy and impact of carrying to term, and raise much-needed funding to further Anencephaly and Acrania research.
TIE-DYE BRIGHT LIGHT 5K
AND FUN WALK
The Luca Hill Bright Light 5k and Fun Walk is all about celebrating life, having fun, keeping healthy, and spreading Acrania and Anencephaly Awareness through Luca’s rain of bright light colors!
Team Luca Runners will have the time of their life as they race, dance, cartwheel, flip, whatever makes them over the moon happy...all through Fort Zumwalt Park! When they reach ‘Celebration Check-Points’ a rain fall of tie-dye colors will douse them and brighten their race day shirts!
