The Transverse Myelitis Association is launching a nationwide campaign to increase awareness and funds for research and programs that the TMA offers, such as our James T. Lubin Fellowship, our research and education programs.
The first Annual South Jersey Walk, organized by Colleen Spaeth and her daughter Mandy Edwards in 2012, sparked the idea for our campaign. The walk was a huge success. Read more from Colleen and Mandy in our TMA 2012 Fall Newsletter.
The campaign will be launched in 10 different cities across the nation starting in April 2013. The 10 cities will design the events based on their creativity and feasibility for different venues, themes and distances under the “10 cities – 1000 people – $100,000” motto.
Starting in April 2013, we will also be sharing stories from our community to increase awareness about these rare neuro-immunologic disorders through various social media strategies, publications and podcasts. If you have a story to share, please send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to volunteer to lead a walk in your city, please email us at email@example.com.
