Making Strides for CJD 

On October 2, 2022 supporters of those affected by Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) are planning to gather for the 5th Annual Strides for CJD in memory of Bakersfield’s 25th Mayor and EMS Pioneer Harvey L. Hall.   

For the past four years, Strides for CJD - Bakersfield has been the Top Fundraising Site and Team Big H, in memory of Harvey L. Hall has been 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.  

A New Location 

Plans are underway to hold the 2022 event at the new Harvey L. Hall Family Plaza, located on the concourse of the Icardo Center at California State University Bakersfield.  This new gathering place for CSUB students and the community will serve as the perfect backdrop and start/finish line for Strides for CJD – Bakersfield.   
About Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease

Strides for CJD enables families to pay tribute to loved ones impacted by Creuztfeldt-Jakob Disease, and raise awareness of this rare neurodegenerative disease that currently 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.
