We appreciate your continued support of our Lyme is Local Events! The money raised from this Walk will go toward grants for those members in our Association who apply to offset some medical expenses that insurance doesn’t pay. Many tick-borne patients have failing health, vast medical bills and are unable to work. LAGKC has presented many grants to those in need since 2019. We hope to continue, with your help!

Please contact us about sponsoring!


The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that Lyme disease is the fastest growing vector-borne infectious disease in the U.S. More than 500,000+ people report cases every year and many go undetected!  Here are some facts about Lyme Disease from the CDC:

·         Ticks can carry over 20 diseases that can cause illness in humans.

·         Most people that have Lyme Disease also have co-infections.

·         Symptoms of Lyme Disease: disabling fatigue, severe headaches, brain fog, chronic nausea and stomach pain, depression, anxiety, nerve pain, muscle pain, muscle weakness, irregular heartbeat and sleeping problems.

Diagnosing can be difficult because it resembles many other diseases and most people do not get a bullseye rash or any rash.

Lyme is Spreading

Testing is Unreliable

Patients are Suffering.
