The Story

EVENT DATE: May 04, 2019

Join us at the Inaugural Annual Philadelphia Walk Strong to Cure JM™ Family Fun Event and Fundraising Walk!

Join us Saturday, May 4, 2019!  The walk begins and ends on the ground floor of 100 South  Independence  Blvd. W,  Philadelphia, PA 19106 (adjacent  to  the  Independence  Beer  Garden).  There  is  a  parking  garage  in  the  same  building  who  has  given  us $10  off  coupons we  will  hand  out  at  the  event-the  entrance  to  the  garage  is  on  Ranstead  between  6th  and  7th.  That  will  take  the  parking  cost  to  $18-you  could  also  always  look  for  street  parking  if  you  prefer.

 

 



Registration opens 4:00 PM (on-site registration available).


Walk Festivities begin 5:00 PM.

 

This event is free and open to the public.

******************************************************

All proceeds benefit Cure JM Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission to find a cure and better treatments for Juvenile Myositis and improve the lives of families affected by JM.

 

Through this walk Cure JM families, friends, and supporters are coming together to raise $20,000 for much-needed Juvenile Myositis research, including research Cure JM is funding right here at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Center for Applied Genomics.  

 

Juvenile Myositis (JM), is a life-threatening disease which causes the body’s own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues.  Juvenile Myositis can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more.  There are currently no FDA-approved treatments and no cure….YET!

 

But that’s where you come in! 

 

Thanks to friends and family like you, Cure JM has made extraordinary progress in drug-development and genetic discovery.  But, the reality is that we simply must move faster and in more areas of research than ever before and we need your support.

 

Every donation goes straight to Cure JM, and together Cure JM friends and families have raised over $12 million for JM research.

 

Can we count on you to help today?
