Staropoli Strides for GSS

Why We Walk

We walk to honor Matthew Staropoli, a beloved husband and dad. 

He always took us to the park, helped us with our homework/ projects, and taught us how to make Cuccidati cookies. 

He called our mom every day before he left work to say he was on his way home. As soon as he got home, he always gave her a kiss. It was their special thing. 

We walk to celebrate his life, bring awareness to GSS, and raise money for research.

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.
