The Remi Savioz Glut1 Foundation will hold its second annual Valentine's Day 5K and 5 Miler on Saturday in North Park.

The rain-or-shine race for runners of all ages and experience levels starts at 10 a.m. at the North Park boathouse. The top three finishers in the male and female divisions will be recognized.

Remi Savioz, 13, of Franklin Park, was diagnosed with the rare brain disease Glucose Transporter Type 1 Deficiency Syndrome, at age 8. The foundation in Savioz's name funds research, awareness and education of RSG1 and other diseases affected by glucose transporters.

Registration is $20 per runner by Friday at midnight or $40 after. Runners can register at www.valentinesday5k.kintera.org.

Proceeds from the event benefit the foundation and RSG1 Brain Fund at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.
