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.

 

Join us as we will step up for tens of thousands of Americans in the fight against MG. 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 want a world without it!

 
From there, it’s as easy as asking people to support you with a contribution of any size.


(Press play and then use the arrows to learn more about the MG Walk campaign and how participation works!)
 

On March 15, 2014, we gather to celebrate those we love who live with MG, celebrate the research we’ve helped developed by fundraising, and the path we’re on to a world without myasthenia gravis!
