The MG Walk generates awareness, renews hope, and creates a community of support and strength. The MG Walk enables patients to talk about their illness – many for the first time – and experience an outpouring of support, concern, and a pledge from family, friends, and coworkers to do more.

We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing that comes up, seeing it as not as dreadful as it appears, discovering that we have the strength to stare it down." -Eleanor Roosevelt
As MG Walkers, we gather across the country to celebrate the lives of men and women of all ages who live with myasthenia gravis.
At each walk, we honor these MG Walk Heroes for going above and beyond to support the MG Walk Campaign. As patients or caregivers, they threw themselves into raising awareness by telling the details that make their “snowflake” MG cases unique.
It’s these stories that drive awareness and remind donors why we are uniting with a common voice to end MG!
The MG Walk can’t happen without the hard work of our dedicated volunteers around the country!
