Walk & Roll to Cure FSHD - the only signature event across North America soley focused on raising funds for FSHD
The Walk & Roll to Cure FSHD is the singularly focused on funding progress for FSHD. Led entirely by dozens of dedicated volunteers, supported by a small staff, events take place across the U.S. and Canada. Stay tuned for date and location announcements for Fall 2023!
We began the campaign in 2018 with just 5 events. This community of fierce FSHDers across North America continue to celebrate successful Walk & Roll events year after year. Since the campaign began, the community has contributed more than $3.3 million to fund critical research and programs of patient education and support. We can't wait to see you at the Walk & Roll in 2024!
FSHD Radio podcast host, Tim Hollenback, annually holds a coast to coast Walk & Roll celebration livestream. Walkers and Rollers check in with us from Florida, to Canada, to California and all points in between.
We celebrate teams and top fundraisers, share personal stories, and come together in one voice that is thousands strong to say, "we are stronger than FSHD!" We will keep going until a cure is found!
Participate in a way that works for you!
In person or virtual, all roads come together through powerful online tools and an international livestream celebration.
Want to participate but live far from an event site? A morning person and want to walk/roll at 7am? Whatever you are most comfortable with, there is a way for you to join this incredible annual effort!
Plan NOW to walk and roll with us in 2024!
Max Adler, National Walk & Roll to Cure FSHD Ambassador
Max Adler launched Team Mighty Max because he watched his Mom, Lisa, and Grandma Ruth struggle with FSH Muscular Dystrophy. Determined to do all he could so that no one would have to go through this ever again, he joined forces with the FSHD Society and determined to be a part of the solution.
"I watched my Mom and Grandma struggle with this disease, and I don’t want that to happen to anyone, anywhere, ever again. The money we raise by participating in this Walk & Roll supports programs and research that will directly impact patients and their families living with FSH Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD)." - Max Adler
