The Story

JOIN US IN MAY 2019 FOR OUR 2ND ANNUAL WALK STRONG TO CURE JM

 

WHEN:  Sunday, June 23, 2019

WHERE: The Hyatt Lodge at McDonald's Campus

2815 Jorie Blvd, Oak Brook, IL 60523

 

Registration opens at 9:00am

Event & Festivities:  10:00 - Noon

 

 

This event is free and open to the public.  

All proceeds benefit Cure JM Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to finding a cure for Juvenile Myositis, a life-threatening disease which causes the body’s own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues. It can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more.   And there is no cure....YET!

 

But with support from friends and family like you, we’re getting closer to better treatments and a cure.  

 

Our first two Walk Strong to Cure JM - Chicago combined raised over $175,00.   

With this continued great support from families and friends we  were able to fund research at 10 prestigious research institutions, helping advance JM research at an unprecendented pace!

 

Your gift now will keep that momentum going.  Every donation goes straight to Cure JM, and over 87% of all funds raised go directly to research.

 

Join the team and fight against JM/JDM today!
