Virtual Viking Run/Walk for Myasthenia Gravis


2020 Virtual Run/Walk Goes Virtual!

June 14-30, 2020

The pandemic forced everyone to change plans. In March, just days after Conquer MG’s  Run/Walk Committee scouted a new location (trees, bathrooms, parking!), it became clear  that we couldn’t gather in person for the 8th Annual Viking Run/Walk.
But… the Run/Walk is essential to the mission and financial strength of this organization. What could we do? Answer: Virtual!
But…what will it look like? And will they come?
Thanks to many supportive individuals, we didn’t need to worry. You walked and ran and biked on your own schedule, in your own neighborhood. And you donated and fundraised to the tune of nearly $20,000.
Thank you for acting like warriors to support our mission. Together we can conquer myasthenia gravis!

Thanks to all our donors!
