ADAMS, Minn. - A Southland High School teen is bringing awareness to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD.

 What started as a senior seminar project is now a call to action for community members. Morgan Brown planned a 4K obstacle course, "Run to Repair" in honor of a family member.

"It is meant for my uncle who has served since 2000 and has since then formed PTSD," explained Brown.

Brown said her uncle worked with Seal Team Seven and even loud noises can be hard for him to deal with. The 4K warrior dash is set for May 19th, at Ironwood Springs Christian Ranch.

"Had to figure out a place to hold it so I first called Ironwood Spring, because it's the biggest place I could think of that is near here that could hold 10 obstacles and might let me tear up their land a little," said Brown.

Around fifty people have signed up for the warrior dash. Brown said her goal is to have 100 people race and raise at least $10,000. All of the funds raised will be split between Ironwood Springs Christian Ranch and the Mower County Veterans Council.
