Conquer Chiari Walk Acoss America ~ September 18, 2010
Posted Sep 10 2010 1:19pm
Do you know what you are doing on Saturday, September 18, 2010? I will be joining thousands of walkers in our third annual Conquer Chiari Walk Across America to show my support to raise money and awareness for Chiari Malformation and related disorders.
There are walks in 30 states this year ~ our goal is to someday have a walk in all of the 50 states.
Conquer Chiari Walk Across America
WHAT? A series of coordinated Chiari walks held at the same time across the country.
WHERE? It is our goal to have at least one walk in each of the 50 states. This year we have 30 walk locations.
WHEN? Saturday September 18th, 2010. September has been named Chiari Awareness Month in several states. In conjunction with the Walk Across America we hope to get more states to recognize September as Chiari Awareness Month.
WHY? To raise awareness of Chiari; to raise money for vital research; and to get people involved.
In 2010 it is our goal to raise at least $300,000 for research. In 2009, more than $250,000 was raised with 90% of the money going directly to fund exciting, new research projects.
