THE STORY:

Liz Beutel wrote -

Join Andrew "Drew" Beutel and the rest of the clan on our first Illinois Walk-Run-Roll
to raise awareness and research money for The Transverse Myelitis Association. Please  show Drew your  support as he continues to fight this challenge after 5 years. The goal of the Illinois Walk-Run-N-Roll Campaign is to increase awareness and raise funds for research and programs for individuals and their caregivers suffering from  the whole life altering Acute Transverse Myelitis (TM) and Recurrent Transverse Myelitis, and other rare immunological disorders. We hope to raise awareness so someday Emergency Staff will know exactly how to quickly diagnose and treat a child or anyone who comes in paralyzed from the neck or waist down with loss of bowel and bladder sensation so that their prognosis is positive. Our hope is that soon the diagnosis of Transverse Myelitis or NMO will be as well recognized as MS or Parkinson's. 

The first annual Illinois Walk-Run-N-Roll for the Transverse Myelitis Association (TMA) will begin with Registration from 10 to 11 a.m., followed by the Walk-Run-N-Roll and a Post-Walk Celebration. It will be held at beautiful McCollum Park, 6801 South Main Street, Downers Grove, IL. Proceeds will benefit TMA's research and service programs for people with TM, NMO, ON and ADEM. We have reserved the large Picnic Pavilion which is adjacent to a 1.2 Mile Paved Path and a Playground with ADA- and CPSC-compliant play equipment. Major highways, including I-355, I-55, I-294 and I-88, are nearby.

Everyone is invited to register, donate and spread the word. Teams are now forming. For information, contact Liz Beutel at thebaziles@aol.com or (773) 425-7955. Sign up before September 1st to get the First Annual TMA Illinois Walk-Run-N-Roll T-Shirt!
