The MG Walk 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.
Register to enter the fight against MG now! You can join an existing team, or start your own! All that’s left is to personalize your fundraising page, share your connection to MG, and tell your story of why you have joined the fight to stop MG…one step at a time.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING 2020 SPRING MG WALKS
Will MGFA cancel spring Walks?
The health and safety of our participants, sponsors, volunteers and staff is our top concern. Currently, ALL spring walks from March 14-May 30 have been postponed until further notice. Additional details can also be found on our MG Walk website here.
We will look at potential dates for this fall and keep you updated as we learn more. If we are able to secure a fall date, then all donations will roll over to the new walk date.
**Any decisions made going forward will absolutely be dependent on where we are at with this global health crisis.
All donations and fundraising for this year’s MG Walk will benefit the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America and help to support research, awareness, and advocacy. You can still raise money and fundraise for this year’s efforts by visiting your walk page at www.mgwalk.org . If we are unable to secure dates this fall, then all fundraisers will receive the MG Walk t-shirt and other prizes based on your fundraising totals ($50 for MG Walk Cooler, $100 for the MG Walk t-shirt, $250+ for additional prizes) one month after your current walk date. MG Walk staff will be in touch with more information.
If you planned to turn in money on the day of the event, please mail to:
MG Walk Office
1707 N. Randall Rd, Suite 200
Elgin, IL 60123
Please understand that MGFA’s priority is the health of our patients, family members, and friends, and this has not been an easy decision to make but it has been made with your health, safety, and general wellbeing in mind. Thanks as always for your continued support and dedication… and we hope to see you soon!
