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. And every dollar raised by you, to go directly to RESEARCH. The Foundation has funded a total 68 research grants, awarding over 6.8 million to research grants, since 2006.
In 2021, we will continue to walk 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, 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 disease progression, prevent complications, and reduce long-term adversities.
- Biomarkers – We are working to identify potential disease activity biomarkers by screening for proteins related to the nervous system and inflammation.
How do I participate in Walk & Roll for GBS|CIDP?
Interested in starting a walk in a city near you? We have Virtual Walk & Rolls currently scheduled for 2021. We will resume in-person Walk & Rolls once in-person events are cleared for safety by the CDC. Please contact Walk Coordinator, Pamela Franks at the Foundation, with any questions. She’s happy to assist!
