Utah to Host ThrillSeeker Event

27 Apr, 2015


Event Creates Awareness for Bone Marrow Donation Program

The ThrillSeeker 5K Stunt Run, presented by Guardian Angel Council, is hitting the Salt Lake City area on its adrenaline-packed nationwide tour. Developed by Hollywood stunt producers, the Stunt Run is a unique obstacle run geared towards anyone looking for a thrill. The race will take place on Saturday, May 23rd at the Salt Lake County Equestrian Park. Participants can expect ultra-premium stunts including the world’s largest inflatable water slide featuring a mega-ramp jump, the stunt trike rally, pole vault, stuntman free fall and eight other incredible stunts.

The brainchild of a creator of action sports entertainment and TV’s top rated stunt shows, Nitro Circus and Thrillbillies, the Stunt Run brings extreme thrills to the masses in a safe, fun environment. A portion of the proceeds from the event benefit Be The Match®, the nation’s largest and most diverse bone marrow registry that matches patients with life-saving donors and provides support through the transplant process. Be The Match® will be on-site for participants wanting to join the registry. 

Event Highlights: With evermore-extreme stunts popularized on the internet and TV, the ThrillSeeker Stunt Run is designed to bridge the gap between safety and adrenaline. The Stunt Run showcases advanced stunt rigging, airbags, and inflatables granting broader access to a bolder form of obstacles not limited by mud, electric shock, cold, extreme fitness, or trending gimmicks found in other running events. The Stunt Run also throws in world-renowned DJ Will Gill, local food trucks, and a family friendly kid’s 1K Stunt Run (ages 6-12), so there is something for everyone.

About ThrillSeeker Stunt Run: The ThrillSeeker Stunt Run is a one-of-a-kind course designed by Hollywood stunt producers. Produced by a creator of Nitro Circus and Thrillbillies, the run includes over a dozen stunts, giving participants the opportunity to experience “as seen on TV” challenges in a fun environment with friends and family.

About Guardian Angel Council: Guardian Angel Council (GAC) is a 501(c)(3) that exists to create awareness for the National Bone Marrow Donor Program, specifically through the Be The Match® Registry. There is an ever-growing need for marrow donors, as there is a 1-in-4 chance of having a sibling be a match, and about 70% of patients in need of a transplant do not have a suitable donor in their family. GAC pays special attention to increasing minority participation in the registry - minorities make up only 30% of potential donors, and patients are more likely to find that life-saving match from donors of their own ethnic background.
