BENEFITING: International OCD Foundation
EVENT DATE: Jun 04, 2016
What better way to kick off the summer season than by walking with your family and friends to raise awareness for OCD and related disorders!
The 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk is the first grassroots awareness-building and fundraising campaign to highlight obsessive compulsive disorder on a national level. The Walk allows us to reach out and start talking about OCD with family members, friends, and colleagues and encourages them to invite even more people into the conversation. For many, it is also an opportunity to share personal stories and shatter some of the misunderstandings and misperceptions of OCD and related disorders. By sharing experiences, we are both educating others about OCD and inviting them to join the OCD and related disorder community by supporting us in our efforts to raise awareness and make a difference. For many people, taking part in an event of this kind can function as a gateway to advocacy.
