Final Run for the Susco 8K: Running With Tim

September is National Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month, and they were off one last time at the 12th annual Susco 8K: Running with Tim. The event brought runners, walkers, volunteers and a handful of sponsors to South Lakes High School on Sunday, Sept. 22. They walked alone and with family. They pushed strollers of babies loved ones never had the chance to meet. And they ran and ran to promote brain aneurysm research so what happened to their loved one, doesn’t happen to others; and to promote organ donation awareness, the gift of life for another person and their family, if tragedy does happen.

Tim Susco was a 1999 SLHS graduate. Susco ran Track and Cross Country every season of his four years at SLHS according to his brother, Tom. In August of 2007, Tim worked in Hollywood as a Key Assistant Location Manager on the television show, “Heroes.” While out scouting for a location that month, Tim suffered what would be a fatal brain aneurysm.

In a statement, after the race, the Susco family wrote: “When we started out, we didn’t know what we were doing and barely thought we’d make it through year one. All we knew was that we wanted to raise awareness and much-needed donations for two wonderful charities that helped us tremendously when Tim passed.”

THE TWO CHARITIES reportedly remained the same for 12 years: Brain Aneurysm Foundation, a global leader in brain aneurysm awareness, education, support, advocacy and research funding; and Washington Regional Transplant Community, a D.C.-based organization responsible for facilitating the organ, eye and tissue donation and transplantation process.
