Sunday, June 9th
Pine Banks Park Melrose
8:30am - 12:00 pm
Wecome to the fundraising page for the 3rd annual Hope for CJD 5K Walk, which will take place at Pine Banks in Melrose on June 9, 2019.
Funds raised from this walk will benefit the Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) Foundation. Our mother, a thirty-five year resident of Melrose, was diagnosed with CJD in 2016 and lost her battle with the terrible disease after only 6 short weeks. CJD is a rare, rapidly progressive neurodegenerative disease. It is described as a “one in a million disease.” The onset is sudden and there is no treatment or cure, and the disease is always fatal. We are hoping you will help us raise awareness and funds for the foundation so that they may continue to provide support for families and continue to conduct research.
The event will feature a 5k walk, treats, raffles, entertainment and more. With a minumum donation of $25, you will receive a Hope for CJD walk shirt.
