Between a Walk and a Hard Place
Dear Family and Friends,
Join us on Saturday June 22nd, 2019, we will be participating in the annual “26 Reasons” to Walk and picnic for the Vasculitis Foundation Canada (VFC), in Cambridge’s River Side Park, alongside other walkers to help increase vasculitis awareness while helping to raise much needed research funds.
Vasculitis is a family of about 26 separate rare autoimmune diseases, but related, within the larger family of about 115 arthritic diseases, and is not contagious or hereditary. Vasculitis is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation of the blood vessel walls, thereby reducing the blood supply and causing tissue and organ damage, which can lead to death. Vasculitis is more common than you think, and sadly deaths do occur.
The Vasculitis Foundation Canada (VFC) was founded by volunteers in 1998, to assist and educate patients living with rare and life-threatening vasculitis diseases. Today VFC’s volunteers still focus on patients, assisting them to care for and take control of their disease, but also to encourage and support research efforts to identify the cause and cure of all types of vasculitis.
This is why the annual “26 Reasons” to walk event is so important to us, and why we’re asking you to HELP to make it STOP by asking you to make a donation today. Every dollar counts towards the VFC’s investment in patient research, awareness, and education, so that every adult and child with the disease can live to fullest, and ultimately one day be cured.
Our goal is to raise $5000.00 CAD.
100% of every dollar you donate goes towards vasculitis awareness, education, and critical Vasculitis research.
