Our Team Fundraising Page

Any affected family will agree that a diagnosis of a prion disease like CJD feels confusing, frightening, and unfair. For some, that feeling lasts a lifetime. The CJD Foundation devotes extensive resources toward the goals of supporting patients and families in their grief, and working to better understand prion disease through research and education. 

Each year in preparation for the Strides 4 CJD 5k, I create a team in memory of my dad, Patrick Yobs. The event takes place the weekend of his birthday each year in October, and the weekend feels full of memories of him. I'm reminded by all of his lifelong friends and our family that his presence is as strong today as it ever was. 

The support of the CJD Community is so amazing that each year I feel more compelled than ever to contribute to research and awareness of CJD, the rare and fatal neurodegenerative disease that took my dad's life, and has affected our family along with so many others.

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.
