Walk & Roll to Cure FSHD - Fall of 2022
The Walk & Roll to Cure FSHD is the only international event focused solely on funding progress for FSHD. Led entirely by dedicated volunteers, supported by staff, events take place all over the U.S. and Canada. Find a Walk & Roll near you - just click on any icon on the map below to get the details on your nearest walk. Sign up today!
We began the campaign in 2018 with just 5 events. In 2021, the second year of a pandemic, this community of fierce FSHDers continued to face challenges head on. Volunteers across North America - the U.S. and Canada - celebrated 29 successful Walk & Roll events. We can't wait to celebrate the 2022 Walk & Roll with you this Fall.
Since the Walk & Roll began we have raised almost $2 million for groundbreaking FSHD research and programs of patient education and support.
Each year, our FSHD Radio podcast host, Tim Hollenback, holds a 4 hour, coast to coast, Walk & Roll celebration livestream. Walkers and Rollers check in with us live from Florida, to Canada, to California - and all points in between.
We celebrate teams and top fundraisers, share personal stories, and come together... one voice that is thousands strong, to say, "FSHD does not get the final word; we will keep walking and rolling until a cure is found!"
Plan to tune in with us on September 17, 2022 on Facebook @FSHDSociety
Team Captains, You Are Our Heroes!!!
Team captains put in a lot of extra time and effort to rally their family and friends for FSHD and we want to celebrate and support that. That's why we've created a Team Captain Success Kit - to help teams achieve even greater success and have even more fun!
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!
We look forward to walking and rolling with you in 2022!
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're raising by participating in this Walk & Roll is supporting programs and funding research that will directly impact patients and their families living with FSH Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD)." - Max Adler
If you are somewhere without a local event, or you're just a huge Max Adler fan, you can join his team, set up your personal fundraising page, then invite your family and friends to support you as we move toward a cure. Or, you can make a donation to support Max's efforts! Then plan to join Max on the Walk & Roll livestream on Facebook, September 17.
