Our family-friendly celebration to raise awareness for myasthenia gravis was all set for June 7, but Mother Nature had other plans. Over 100 MG supporters came out to cheer our cause, while the other 100 registrants opted to stay dry and raise awareness at home. Even so, our awareness-raising and fundraising efforts were very successful. The local Elmhurst newspaper ran an MG story, the event was posted on many online platforms, and many new folks heard the MG message. We doubled our net proceeds compared to last year, too, raising $20,875 to serve MG patients. Thank you, walkers, donors, and sponsors!

We’re very grateful to our Walk Sponsors for their support. They were FANTASTIC!
