4th Annual International Chiari Walk on September 5

Tue, 03/10/2015

The International Chiari Association (ICA) voted, 5-0, at Friday's board meeting to make Saturday, September 5, the date for the 4th Annual International Chiari Walk.  

"We look forward to September 5 and hope that everyone participates to help spread Chiari Awareness," said ICA Founder/President Pete Dal Bello. "The ICA is looking for Walk Site Coordinators and we will also soon be unveiling a Chiari Awareness T-shirt which will be a fundraiser throughout the year."

The walks are FREE, but if you can make a tax-deducible donation the following is where the money will go:

50% Chiari Research
40% ICA General Fund (The ICA General Fund provides the resources necessary for the day-to-day activities of the organization.)
10% Chiarians' Assistance Fund (helping people with Chiari)

NONE of the donations from the walk goes toward salaries, rent, etc. The ICA is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization.

Walk Site Coordinators determine the time, location and distance for the September 5 walk. Since everyone's health is the most important thing, walkers can walk as far or short as they feel comfortable. Everyone is encouraged to wear purple, the color for Chiari Awareness.

If you would like to become a Walk Site Coordinator, feel free to contact Dal Bello at pete@ChiariAssociation.org . Please put "Chiari Walk" in the subject line.  

We thank you for your support.
