THE STORY:

Hello Loves!! I do NOT expect anyone to drive the distance to attend this event. So far, it is just my mini and I. Russ is unable to walk lately without having back pain but he will be there in spirit! I cannot emphasize the importance of spreading awareness of Fibromyalgia. It isn't something any of us asked for however, it is a reality that we must face daily. Most diagnosed suffer from unexplained widespread pain and fatigue, so I will be walking for myself as well as  all others diagnosed. Also for the families and friends that support us without question, every day. 

My hope in raising awareness is alleviating the feelings of depression and loneliness that often come with this reality; To one day find more advanced diagnostic testing and a more popular approval of treatment options. Of course, a cure would be fabulous!! Not too much to ask for, right?! Xoxox, Cort

 Grab a pair of walking shoes, roll up your sleeves, and meet others who want to make a difference.  It’s time to make fibromyalgia visible in historic Richmond, Virginia! The Richmond Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Association invites you to participate in the inaugural Richmond Together Walk!

 

The National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association is joining forces with local organizations like ours across the U.S. to launch TOGETHER WALKS in 2016 to raise fibromyalgia awareness and research funding.  Passionate Leaders have already taken the lead for 2016 in Richmond, Portland, Coral Springs, Louisville, and a Virtual Online Walk. 

 

Your voice matters in changing how fibromyalgia is perceived, treated, and researched.  Simply invite your family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, along with health and elected officials to come stroll, walk, learn, meet others, and support funding for fibromyalgia research at the Together Walk – Richmond 1K Walk on May 7!   TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! 

 

Through research/innovation seed funding raised at Together Walks, new exploration in areas such as small fiber neuropathy, cervical cord compression, and myofascial release may bring promising new treatments.


Fibromyalgia is a life-altering condition affecting 2-4% of women, men and children of all backgrounds worldwide to suffer.  (That’s 10 million Americans alone.)  The disorder can strike suddenly or occur as a gradual increase in symptoms, indicating changes in the central nervous system (neuroplasticity).  Sensory information (such as light, sound, and touch) becomes amplified by the CNS, causing the brain to respond with increasing pain and symptoms.  FM severity waxes and wanes; often increases over time; and may become disabling. 

TO RECEIVE YOUR T-SHIRT ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT,  please register and choose your t-shirt size by April 20th.  A few extra t-shirts will be available on the day of the walk, and t-shirts ordered after April 20th can be picked up at a central location on a date TBA.

 

The Richmond Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Association thanks you for your continuing support and looks forward to walking with you. If you are interested in getting involved or volunteering with the Together Walk in Richmond please contact us at richmondfibro.org or VolunteerSpot.

 

Can you imagine what can be done together when there is a walk in every state and across the globe?  If you are interested in hosting a Together Walk in 2017, please contact the NFMCPA at info@fmcpaware.org.
