In 2012, Chef Ethan Stowell and his wife Angela created a special event to raise awareness and funds for research on fetal diseases. "Eat Run Hope" has raised more than $135,000 since its inception, and has brought people together for a day of friendship, fun and food. The annual event, which benefits the Fetal Health Foundation, is a positive way to pay tribute to the unborn twins the Stowells lost to Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome, and a way to help other families.
Ethan and Angela Stowell, along with their son Adrian, joined Margaret to talk more about how Eat Run Hope has evolved, and shared their plan to use $25,000 from funds raised at this year's event to estabilsh the Nathaneal & Gabriel Stowell Memorial Research Grant. The grant's mission is to improve health outcomes for pregnancies and infants affected by fetal syndromes.
The third annual "Eat Run Hope" event takes place Sunday, June 29th at Magnusson Park in Seattle. Registration begins at 2:30pm, followed by the Bacon Adventure Relay, then the walks, food and more.
