Cure One to Cure All. Operation Shooting Star (OSS) is a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization dedicated to raising awareness of Autoimmune Diseases while committed to sending 100%* of proceeds directly to research.

An estimated 24 MILLION AMERICANS suffer from one or more of over 80 AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES...all we really need is 1 CURE.

According to the National Institutes of Health, these diseases "occur as a result of the immune system attacking the body’s own organs, tissues, and cells. Some of the more common autoimmune diseases include type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and inflammatory bowel disease", or Multiple Sclerosis, Psoriasis, Celiac Disease...the list goes on and on, and "treatments are available for many autoimmune diseases, but cures have yet to be discovered." Several of these diseases share a common immune basis and therefore information obtained from research in one autoimmune condition can be beneficial to others.  Enter Operation Shooting Star, a non-profit created to raise awareness and funds for research focusing on the common thread between these diseases. We believe that supporting research directly will not only help to find a cure for one autoimmune disease but, hopefully by doing so, this will open up doors to eventually cure over 80 others.  Please consider donating and sharing our page to help raise awareness and funds for current research projects conducted at the University of Maryland Baltimore Foundation, Operation Shooting Star’s original and current beneficiary, as well as other Autoimmune Disease research organizations.  Thank you!

*Our “100% in, 100% out” goal is achieved through receiving sponsorships designated for specific operating expenses to absorb the cost of each event.  Also, in order to accept donations online via credit/debit cards, transactions are subject to applicable fees/charges.
