BENEFITING: The Transverse Myelitis Association

The goal of the Michigan 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 5, 2013, beginning at 8:00 a.m., the TMA Walk-Run-N-Roll Awareness Campaign in Michigan will be held on the campus of Harderwyk Ministries located at 1627 West Lakewood Boulevard, Holland, Michigan 49424.

I’m inviting all my family & friends to donate & walk in honor of all those affected with Transverse Myelitis (TM) and the many other neurological diseases.

It will be 4 years Dec 8th that I woke up paralyzed from the chest down. After two terrifying months in the hospital, I was sent home with my new lifeless body, I learned how to drag it around with me day after day. I made a promise to myself that I would not stay in a wheelchair, I would learn how to walk, til the day I die.  Through the years of physical therapy, medication, counseling and Faith. I’ve been able to go from a wheelchair, to a walker and now to a cane. Its all because of my family and friends, who had faith in me, when I didn’t and encouraged me never to quit.

We desperately need to find a cure for people suffering with Transverse Myelitis. This ultra-rare but not uncommon disease attacks the spine and paralyzes the body with no warning.  YOUR kindness is the ONLY way to fund the search for a cure since Transverse Myelitis is not being paid attention to by big pharmaceutical companies, doctors, and hospitals. If everyone gives something today, then the research and studies can be done.

The venue is a quick 2.2 miles from the soft sands of Holland State Park and 5.5. miles from the quaint shops and restaurants of downtown Holland. The Michigan Walk-Run-N-Roll event is near the shores of Lake Michigan and only 2.5 hours north of Chicago! We look forward to your support; come join us and let’s raise awareness and funds to advance clinical care and research for rare neuro-immune diseases.

Registration opens at 8 AM and the walk will begin at 9:45 AM.

Sign up before September 1st to get the First Annual TMA Michigan Walk-Run-N-Roll T-Shirt!

Many thanks from the bottom of my heart!   Darlene (darla.caterina@gmail.com)
