Our Team Fundraising Page

Supporting team For Rita's Sake means supporting research to find a cure.  It means someone else, some day, will not have to go through what Rita did and what we all had to endure as we lost her.  

Rita was the light for her family.  Her love and support were felt by everyone that loved and knew her.  She lost a crazy hard, fast, sudden battle after 3 months and never knowing what was wrong with her.  She passed in February of 2019, the day after her family finally got the diagnosis.  We hate that we ever heard of CJD and now we fight to get rid of it forever.  

Please stride with us to find a cure or treatment.

About Strides for CJD

Strides for CJD is an annual walk/run to raise awareness of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), a rare neurodegenerative disease that has no treatment or cure. Through this event, anyone -- anywhere -- can pay tribute to their loved ones and raise funds for the CJD Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization.

Funds raised support our programs including:

  • Our 24/7 helpline, support groups, conference, and other family programs throughout the year.
  • Research grants to help scientists make important discoveries and bring us closer to a cure.
  • Medical education to help raise awareness and understanding of prion disease.
