International Symposium
The MG Walk is dedicated to raising awareness, renewing hope, and connecting communities around MG. The Walk raises critical funds for research, patient services, education and advocacy.  The Walk puts the power directly into the hands of the community; allowing everyone battling this illness to become part of the driving force for MG research, to ultimately find a cure. The Walk also provides a space to share and support each other in a safe and nurturing environment, often for the first time, while joining with community. Be a part of the movement!
