Hi Everyone!

Thank you for taking time to check this out! Fundraising and gaining information is so important for all of us that have been affect one way or another with KD. I had it 25 years ago, when I was 3 years old. Every year during my physical, I would ask the doctor if there was new information around the disease, and I got a lot of blank looks! Spreading awareness and raising money would get us collectively closer to more answers. I've been reading the forum posts and the KDF Facebook updates, and I'm so inspired by all of you, and your dedication!

Fun runs are HUGE in Washington, D.C. and I was thinking, what better way to raise money and awareness, than a heart healthy activity like a fun run! I have contacted a few local running organizations to gain their support, and I wanted to also open it up to anyone that has already done something like this! If anyone has any tips or advice regarding their knowledge or possible experience organizing a run or another fundraiser, I would love your feedback! Thank you for your help, and I look forward to what may come!
