Heath Northup's Conquer Chiari Walk Across America Page
The Conquer Chiari Walk Across America is an annual fundraising and awareness event comprised of a series of local walks held on the same day.
In 2010, the event was held at 28 different locations, involved more than 4,000 participants, and raised over $330,000. We are proud to say that 87% of the money raised will be used directly to fund research projects and that only 13% was required for overhead and expenses. This year the walk will be held on September 17th, and it is our goal to raise at least $375,000 for research.
Message from Heath:
Heath's Health Journey started when he was just a few weeks old. But he was 25 months before we found out it was Chiari. This is why our team fundraising goal is set at $2,500. http://www.pregnancy.org/blogs/mujul79 This link is his blog and how far he has come and how far he has yet to go in his fight. Everyday he smiles and shows us he is a fighter. Come walk with us or give a donation to help support him and all the others that have Chiari just like him. https://www.conquerchiari.org/ccwaa11/HeathNorthup
