Host an Awareness Fundraiser

Chiari_Bike-a-thon3.jpg You can always organize your own fundraiser or awareness event to benefit the over one million families affected by Chiari malformation, syringomyelia, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and related disorders.

We love to hear about your fundraisers and events! You can even send us pictures and blurbs from your fundraiser and we'll post it on our social media. The picture to the right is from an awesome young lady who hosted a Bike-A-Thon at her school to support her mom with Chiari. We love when patients, their friends and their families help by spreading awareness and raising critical funding for education and research!
