About Strides for CJD
On October 11, 2020 supporters of those affected by Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) will join virtually for the 3rd Annual Strides for CJD in memory of Bakersfield's 25th Mayor and EMS Pioneer Harvey L. Hall.
Strides for CJD enables families to pay tribute to loved ones and raise awareness of this rare neurodegenerative disease that has no treatment or cure. CJD is caused by 'prions,' proteins that can misfold in the brain, with devastating effect, including rapid mental and physical deterioration. Prion diseases are invariably fatal.
For the past two years, Strides for CJD Bakersfield was the Top Fundraising Site and Team Big H, in memory of Harvey L. Hall was the Top Fundraising Team in the United States. Help us keep the momentum going as we raise funds for the CJD Foundation to provide family support, medical education, and funding for research programs related to CJD.
