In 2011, the event was held at 47 different locations, involved more than 5,800 participants, and raised over $405,000. We are proud to say that 83% of the money raised will be used directly to fund research projects and that only 17% was required for overhead and expenses. This year the walk will be held on September 22nd, and it is our goal to raise at least $450,000 for research.

I'm walking in support of our friend, Christine Smith, host and Chiari sufferer. This chronic pain condition is rare and can be fatal. As a fellow chronic pain sufferer it will take money to fund research in hopes to find a cure. Please help me by making a donation, in any amount you would like. Thank you.
