In Honor of Elaine Jeffers

We lost our loved one, Elaine, on May 18 2018. She was loved by all who knew her and will be sorely missed forever.


Our team's goal is that someday the words UNTREATABLE, INCUREABLE , and ALWAYS FATAL, will be eliminated from the description of this horrible disease. We hope that you will join us, walking/running/donating in order to help us and CJD Foundation achieve our goal.


Thank you!

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.
