EVENT TIME: 8:00 AM Registration, 10:00 AM Walk
EVENT LOCATION: Hickory Creek Forest Preserve, 10537 W. LaPorte Road, Mokena, IL 60448

Life-altering, chronic pain is REAL, and better treatments are needed TODAY!

It’s time to make fibromyalgia (FM) and chronic pain diseases visible, advocate for better access to care, and encourage and fund research for integrative treatments for FM in Chicago. Held annually across the nation, Together Walks are a global movement to create a world where men, women, children, seniors, and our veterans have access to the pain treatments they need.

Grab a pair of walking shoes, roll up your sleeves, and meet others who want to make a difference in Chicago! Chicagoland Allies Against Pain, in partnership with the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association, invites you to participate in the Chicagoland Together Walk!

You can change how FM is perceived, treated, and researched.  Simply join this community event and invite your family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, healthcare providers, and elected officials to come stroll, walk, learn, meet others, and fund FM research at the Together Walk on May 13 at Hickory Creek Forest Preserve! We can’t wait to meet you.

Together we make a difference and make fibromyalgia visible.

What impact can YOU make through Together Walks?

  • Raise FM awareness by educating local communities and political leaders about this condition
  • Alleviate stigmatization of people suffering with FM and chronic pain diseases
  • Create more pilot research funding, especially in the field of effective integrative treatments and new exploration in areas such as small fiber neuropathy, cervical cord compression, and myofascial release which promises new treatments
  • Increase support by providing local, accessible resources and information for daily living to patients
  • Promote awareness of the ramifications, including financial consequences, of chronic pain to the public, legislators, medical community and government agencies

What is fibromyalgia?
 

Fibromyalgia is a life-altering condition affecting 2-4% of women, men and children of all backgrounds worldwide to suffer.  (That’s 10 million Americans alone.)  The disorder can strike suddenly or occur as a gradual increase in symptoms, indicating changes in the central nervous system (neuroplasticity).  Sensory information (such as light, sound, and touch) becomes amplified by the CNS, causing the brain to respond with increasing pain and symptoms.  FM severity waxes and wanes; often increases over time; and may become disabling.
