Description

JOIN THE MOVEMENT TO RAISE AWARENESS AND FUNDS FOR PEOPLE LIVING WITH FIBROMYALGIA!
ALTHOUGH, THIS YEAR WE ARE NOT ABLE TO COME TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY, WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO JOIN, RAISE AWARENESS AND GO OUT AND WALK, JOG OR RUN IN YOUR LOCAL PARK (WHILE ABIDING BY THE RESTRICTIONS AND REGULATIONS OF YOUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT). THIS PAST YEAR HAS BEEN DIFFICULT; NONETHELESS, WE HAVE STOOD THE TEST OF TIME IN TRUE WARRIOR FASHION AND THAT ALONE DESERVES A VICTORY LAP.

By registering for our annual Caterpillar Walk/Run you are helping to amplify the voices of 10-12 million people nationwide living with fibromyalgia. The funds raised will be earmarked to our Center of Excellence Program (COE). 

Don’t forget to send all your beautiful pictures and videos to caterpillarwalk@fibro.org. We look forward to seeing all your smiling faces and sharing them via social media and possibly on some upcoming video projects in the very near future!

Fibromyalgia affects us all, one of the greatest challenges our community faces is lack of awareness (both within the medical community and the community at-large) which leads to isolation, fear, and depression. As the FCSA works to address the gaps in medical care and supportive services one of our biggest priorities is bringing our community together. Embracing our diversity. Celebrating our differences...and above all uniting our community. 

There is strength in unity. We are One, United We Walk!
