A Walk for ADAM
Every year during Autoimmune Disease Awareness Month (ADAM), Autoimmune Association hosts events, and leads projects and initiatives, to focus the national attention on autoimmune disease and its impact on patients and families. This year, for the first time, we invite you to host your own “Walk for ADAM” to help us make a difference.
Walk on any day during the month of March to raise awareness and galvanize support where you live. As much as we would like to, Autoimmune Association can’t be in every city or state, but we know that there are autoimmune patients and families who are, and who want to do what they can to help bring about meaningful change, such as reduced time to diagnosis and fewer barriers to the treatments you need. A Walk for ADAM is one way you can help.
Whether your Walk takes place outdoors or inside; in warm weather or cold; with a group of 5 or 500 — each one will be important to our mission of raising awareness nationwide, and raising funding for research.
Register online at [email protected] as an individual, a team leader or team member. Once you have registered, you can create your personal awareness and fundraising page and invite your family members, friends and colleagues to join your team or support your individual Walk for ADAM!
Team Starters will receive a Walk for ADAM kit that includes 1 Walk T-shirt, informational brochures, “Linking Together for a Cure” awareness wristbands, and other items to help you recruit team members and to share with potential donors. Individual participants will receive a similar kit. All registered Walkers will receive an Autoimmune Walk T-shirt. Walkers who raise $250 or more also will receive Autoimmune Walk sweatshirts!
