Walking towards the Ultimate “Finish Line”… a World without MG!

The MG Walk Campaign generates awareness, renews hope, and creates community of support and strength across the country. The MG Walk enables patients to talk about their illness – many for the first time – and experience an outpouring of support, concern and pledges from loved ones to do more. Please strongly consider joining us, walking and raising vital funds for the tens of thousands Americans who live with MG every day. Click “Register” above to start or join a team. Then update your free personal fundraising page and tell the world about myasthenia gravis…and why we are striving for a world without it!

New Engagement Program in 2015!

The 2015 MG Walk is thrilled to introduce the MGagement Program, where walkers will have 3 different ways to maximize their awareness and fundraising engagement! These ways…which include some past and new activities are as follows:

_

1.  Terrific Rewards for reaching fundraising levels of $100, $250, $500 and $1,000. 

2. Points earned for walkers doing all they can to engage their network and maximize their fundraising. 

3. VIP Clubs for those who raise more than $500 (Silver Soles) and $1,000 (Gold Toes).

MG Walk Heroes

 

  “A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” - Christopher Reeve

 

As MG Walkers, we gather all across the country to celebrate the lives of men and women of all ages who live with myasthenia gravis….all of which are Heroes!

 

For each of the 2015 MG Walks, a local MG Local Walk Hero will be designated and will proudly represent all the other heroes living in their community. We also honor the local MG Walk Herofor going above and beyond in their support and dedication to raising awareness around the MG Walk Campaign, including sharing their story of what makes their “snowflake” MG so unique!

 

Each of their stories remind us why we “Walk for a world without MG”…uniting together in a common voice to end myasthenia gravis once and for all!

Why We Walk

Volunteer

The MG Walk Campaign volunteers are the people who make each of our MG Walks possible. The tireless efforts of our dedicated volunteers enable us to run successful events across the country. We need volunteers to help us set up, sign in participants, hand out snacks and water, mark the route and keep everything running smoothly!

Click HERE or call 855-MG-Walks (855-649-2557) to sign up as a volunteer today!
