Support FMD at the Manchester Road Race
Organized by: Bradley J Daar
EVENT DATE Nov 26, 2015
Don't be a Turkey this Thanksgiving!
Do something special this year to help others!! I want to make it easy.You dont need to run, walk, or even show up. Just donate, make a page to raise funds,or get friends or relatives that are runners to donate or create their own pages. It takes no time to take a step toward fighting a vascular disease that affects a large part of the population. Because of lack of awareness and poor diagnosis, FMD continues to threaten the health of thousands.
Fibromuscular Dysplasia is a vascular disease that can affect the arteries of the kidney, the heart and the carotid. Once thought to be rare it is actually a more common disease that is often diagnosed. Symptoms such as headache and high blood pressure are very common.Because of this it is very often misdiagnosed leading to lack of treatment. Stroke , aneurysms, kidney disease, heart disease, are just some of the possible outcomes. The FMDSA (see FMDSA.org) is a non -profit dedicated to building awareness of FMD, funding research activities, providing patient support, and educating patients and the healthcare community.
If you are interested in joining our team and making your race count this year, feel free to set-up a fundraising page of your own right here. More information about the race can be found at www.manchesterroadrace.com. If you'd like to sponsor me and my team with a much appreciated donation, we encourage you to do so through this site. Your contributions will directly help spread awareness leading to better diagnosis, and help understand FMD to better treat or one day cure.
Bradley Daar DDS, President of the FMDSA Board
