Sarah Herron and Stars from the Bachelor Series Help Raise Fetal Health Awareness at Great Candy Run

More than 6,000 Runners and Walkers Expected at Wash Park on November 6th

DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 10/19/16 -- Evergreen-native Sarah Herron, who appeared on ABC's "The Bachelor" (2013) and "Bachelor in Paradise" (2014, 2016) will be in Colorado for the 13th Annual Great Candy Run. Set for Sunday, November 6, in Denver's Washington Park, this fun-filled event benefits the Fetal Health Foundation, which provides assistance to families experiencing complicated pregnancies and funds research into fetal syndromes.

Herron was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome, a fetal syndrome that affected her left arm and caused life-long insecurities. Following this year's season premiere of Bachelor in Paradise, Herron received a great deal of social media support after being verbally abused by a bachelor for her birth defect. It is this type of behavior that prompted Herron, who now lives in Los Angeles, to create SheLift. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, SheLift empowers girls to conquer their personal obstacles by providing them with the tools, experiences and mentorship to work toward living an inspired, authentic life.

In addition to learning more about SheLift, visitors to Herron's booth in the Great Candy Run expo area will have an opportunity to have their picture taken with some of their favorite personalities from the popular ABC television shows. Herron has invited several of her friends, including Carly Waddell and Evan Bass, JJ Lane, Trista and Ryan Sutter, and Jade and Tanner Tolbert, to join her at the November 6 event.

Presented by The Colorado Institute for Maternal and Fetal Health, the Great Candy Run is sweet fun for all ages. In addition to the 5K Run/Walk -- which includes a competitive Stroller Division -- and a free Coda Coffee Gumdrop Kids Fun Run, activities will include costume contests, prize money, medals for all finishers, on-course entertainment, celebrity appearances by local mascots, a huge post-race expo area, and, of course, plenty of candy. New this year is a Jelly Belly Jelly Bean Village featuring four tasting booths including BeanBoozled, the popular spinner game where contestants receive either a sweet and tasty bean or a weird and wild flavor depending on the luck of the spin.

The Fetal Health Foundation is a leader, nationally and internationally, in supporting families and medical treatment centers dealing with intrauterine fetal syndromes. The Littleton, Colo.-based 501c3 nonprofit organization connects families diagnosed with a fetal disorder to top-rated medical specialists and funds research to improve outcomes in fetal conditions.

SheLift aims to provide healing and prevention of insecurities for girls who've been made to feel "different" by empowering them to conquer their personal obstacles with the tools, experiences and mentorship to work towards living an inspired, authentic life.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
