Welcome to the Colorado Chapter!
Thank you for visiting the Colorado Chapter of the FSHD Society!
We are here to build a local community of patients, family and friends, and help them connect and advocate for themselves and each other. Our hope for the future is to find a cure – Until then, we hope to bring a greater awareness to the community, and to help improve the quality of life of all those affected.
Our 2020 Virtual Walk & Roll was fantastic, thanks to all of you! Our chapter overcame all the obstacles 2020 threw at us. You invited your family and friends and they showed up!
On Saturday, September 12, 2020 we joined with Chapters nationwide to celebrate in a 4-hour Facebook livestream event. It was awesome.
Together we are celebrating more than a half million raised nationwide!
