Team Jim Larson
CJD affects 1 in a million per year worldwide and there is no cure. They need increased researching funding & attention to this awful disease so hopefully one day there is treatment & a cure.
In honor of our Father, Jim Larson, we are continuing to raise money for Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Foundation Inc. He lost his battle to CJD almost 10 years ago. This cause means a lot to us, and believe we can make a difference together.
2021/ 4th Annual: we had over 175 walkers and raised $18,266!!
2020/ 3rd Annual: we hosted a virtual walk and had 52 participants and still managed to raise $9k!!
2019/ 2nd Annual: we had 140 people attend and we raised over $15,000! That's amazing!!!
