Thank you for making our 2020 Walk-Run-N-Roll events a success!
February 29 and September 12, 2020
Casa Grande, AZ and Madison, WI
In 2020, we learned even more about the importance of these events as we canceled events due to the pandemic and pivoted to a virtual experience for all but one of our scheduled Walk-Run-N-Rolls. Our last in-person event of the year took place at the Arizona WRNR in February 2020 where we celebrated Rare Disease Day with a dedicated community of those diagnosed with rare neuroimmune disorders, their family and friends, sponsors, and medical professionals. The 2020 Wisconsin WRNR was our first foray into virtual event planning — where participants could walk, run, or roll from the safety of their home and then come together with others on the day of the event via Zoom. These two events raised more than $33,000 to support us in our mission. We have shared stories, learned about scientific advances, but most importantly, looked forward to these events as a way to become better advocates for ourselves and our community.
A huge thank you to our sponsors!
