Welcome to the Idaho Chapter!
Founded by Minette Hale in January 2020, the goals of the Chapter Program here in the Idaho area are to:
- Increase awareness and educate families throughout Idaho.
- Help build connections among patients, care givers, health care providers and others affected by this disease.
- Harness the power of those shared connections allowing us all to gain strength, support and encouragement as we push forward in finding a cure for FSH.
- Last but not least let’s HAVE SOME FUN while we accomplish these goals!
Please join our chapter via the "Stay informed on Local Activities" form on the right. We'll make sure you receive updates about future events and plans!
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.
Did you participate? You can still earn some great rewards. The deadline for prizes is September 25th. Have some fun pictures or video to share? Add them to our google folder HERE
If you haven't had a chance to chip in, it's not too late to help us reach our goal.
