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, to provide family support, medical education and research programs.
This year, Strides for CJD will be a VIRTUAL event nationwide. While we’re not able to gather in person, we will unite in spirit to raise much needed awareness and funds for CJD and other prion diseases.
