BENEFITING: The Transverse Myelitis Association
The goal of the Texas Walk-Run-N-Roll Campaign is to increase awareness and raise funds for research and programs for individuals suffering from Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM), Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO), Optic Neuritis (ON), Transverse Myelitis (TM) and Recurrent Transverse Myelitis, and their caregivers.
On October 4th, 2014, the first Texas Walk-Run-N-Roll for TMA Awareness Campaign will be held in Irving, Texas. The Event will begin with Registration from 9:00 to 10:00 am, followed by Guest Speaker, Dr. Ben Greenberg, UTSW, then Walk-Run-N-Roll and Post Walk Celebration. The Event will be held at Cottonwood Creek Park, 4051 N Story Rd Irving, TX 75038. Proceeds will benefit TMA's research and service programs for people with TM, NMO, ON and ADEM.
Please join me in raising awareness and supporting those who are impacted by these rare, and often devastating, neuro-immune disorders. So many of those affected must fight a daily, heroic battle for life that most of us take for granted. I am truly inspired by their strength, courage, determination, resiliency and sheer will.
- There are no medications specifically designed for these disorders.
- Very little is understood about the disorder mechanisms.
- Many patients are initially misdiagnosed.
- Currently, there is no cure.
I am personally committed to help drive change for education, treatment, and cure.
Please join me in this effort, and together, we CAN advance this cause!
