Welcome to Walk & Roll for GBS|CIDP, a community-driven national walk to support the mission of the GBS|CIDP Foundation International.
Why Walk for GBS|CIDP?
Walk & Roll is a great way to raise awareness, show your support, make friends and build a local network. In 2018, we updated the program to the Walk & Roll for Research. Designating every dollar raised by you, to go directly to research. YOUR donations have been able to fully fund SEVEN grants for Research, totaling almost $400,000, since it’s inception.
This year, by increasing our goal to $300,000, we are taking it one step further, and aiming to fund SIX research grants!
In 2020, we will continue walking for scientific innovation, quicker diagnosis, and better treatments. And each walk is one mile closer to overcoming the challenges of living with GBS, CIDP and its variants, such as MMN. Invite your friends, family, neighbors, and community to join our mission, walk or roll one mile, and have fun too! Funds raised through our walk program will help to support our research initiatives including:
- Diagnosis – Developing methods to more rapidly diagnose GBS, CIDP and its variants, such as MMN.
- Treatments – Developing more effective treatments to limit the disease progression, prevent complications and reduce long-term adversities.
- Genetics – Identifying mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of family disorders.
