BENEFITING: Transverse Myelitis Association
EVENT DATE: Oct 05, 2014
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 second 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.
Last year's event was tremendous success. People who have battled these rare disorders alone met other patients who shared their experiences, fears and hopes. Too often, people with these disorders have never met or talked to another person who shared their diagnosis. The Walk-Run-N-Roll ended the isolation for many of us. Please join us again this year to support TMA and tthe patients and famiilies they serve.
