MG Walk Participants,

We are disappointed to share with you that the 8th Annual Atlanta MG Walk scheduled for this Saturday at the Chamblee United Methodist Church has been postponed until further notice due to the coronavirus concerns.  We will look at potential dates for this fall and keep you updated as we learn more.  If we are able to secure a fall date, then all donations will roll over to the new walk date.
**Any decisions made going forward will absolutely be dependent on where we are at with this global health crisis.

All donations and fundraising for this year’s MG Walk will benefit the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America and help to support research, awareness, and advocacy. You can still raise money and fundraise for this year’s efforts by visiting our Walk page at  https://live-mgwalk.pantheonsite.io/2020-ga-atlanta-mg-walk/  .  If we are unable to secure a date this fall, then all fundraisers will receive the MG Walk t-shirt and other prizes based on your fundraising totals ($50 for MG Walk Cooler, $100 for the MG Walk t-shirt, $250+ for additional prizes) as of April 14.  MG Walk staff will be in touch with more information.

If you planned to turn in money on the day of the event, please mail to:

MG Walk Office
1707 N. Randall Rd, Suite 200
Elgin, IL 60123

Please understand that MGFA’s priority is the health of our patients, family members, and friends, and this has not been an easy decision to make but it has been made with your health, safety, and general wellbeing  in mind. Thanks as always for your continued support and dedication… and we hope to see you soon!

 

COME TOGETHER TO SUPPORT THE ATLANTA MG COMMUNITY… The MG Walk isn’t really about walking — it’s about supporting the MG community, and we need YOU to make that happen. MG is a rare and chronic neuromuscular autoimmune disease affecting tens of thousands of people. When you come together with friends and family to walk in your community, you give hope to everyone impacted by MG. Money raised from the MG Walk funds research towards better treatments, bringing us closer to a cure, and supports services for those living with MG. That’s why we join forces at this event—walking or not—supporting each other toward the ultimate finish line, a world without myasthenia gravis! Register now to join an existing team, or to start and Captain your own!

All that’s left after that, is to create and customize your FREE personal fundraising page, share your connection to myasthenia gravis and start fundraising!
