Karen Garrity


BENEFITING: The Transverse Myelitis Association


The goal of the Illinois 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.


The first annual Illinois Walk-Run-N-Roll for the Transverse Myelitis Association (TMA) will begin with Registration from 9 to 10 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 Nancy Dove at nancydove@cs.com or (312) 316-5262.



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