A WORLD WITHOUT MG

The MG Walk Campaign is dedicated to creating awareness, renewing hope, and generating a vast network of community and support, all while raising important funds for the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America (MGFA). The MG Walk puts the power directly into the hands of MG patients, and allows everyone battling this illness to become the driving force behind funding for MG research, and ultimately, in finding a cure. In addition to fundraising, the MG Walk also allows patients with MG to open up and discuss their journey in a safe and nurturing environment, many for the first time, while experiencing an overwhelming sense of community from their loved ones and fellow MG patients. Join us as we come together to raise vital funds that go to supporting the tens of thousands of Americans who live with this rare disease every day.

Meet our 2017 National MG Walk Hero

 

Alexis Rodriguez

 

 


After his diagnosis, Alexis sought out as much information on myasthenia gravis as possible. Through this active research, Alexis discovered the MGFA Chapter located in Georgia. He was an active member for several years before signing on to serve as their Vice-President. During his years as Vice-President, he led the chapter to increase the number of meetings held annually, along with actively recruiting a more diverse range of Support Group members to represent the wide range of individuals affected by myasthenia gravis. In 2012, Alexis and the Chapter were approached about starting an MG Walk in their area. Alexis saw this as an opportunity to rally those with MG and their supporters, serve the community, and create much needed awareness while raising vital funds for MG.
