MAKE IT RAIN!
May 10, 2016
EVENT: Together Walk Coral Springs
EVENT DATE: May 15, 2016
As a Fibromyalgia fighter and Chronic Pain sufferer, this cause is very close to my heart! Please help us raise funds by purchasing anything from our Etsy store, donating online, or joining our team in Coral Springs or virtually from anywhere as we walk to raise awareness and funds for life changing research!
Fibromyalgia and Chronic pain are "invisible" conditions. This means that patients are often undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or treated like the pain is all in their head or psycological. As more research is being done we are finding physical manifestations and tangible effects proving that these conditions are in fact real and impact the lives of those affected in a way that cannot always be seen but is always FELT.
Lets make Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Visible!
EVENT TIME: Registration at 9 AM; Walk Opening at 10 AM
Make an online donation or purchase from our store and we will include your name and optional message (ex. "in honor of ______") on our "I AM MARVELOUSLY ME" wall of honor at the event!
Don't forget to have your picture taken at the BE MARVELOUS photobooth for free (photos will be linked online for free downloading).
Grab a pair of walking shoes, roll up your sleeves, and meet others who want to make a difference. It’s time to make fibromyalgia visible in Coral Springs, Florida! The Florida Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Network invites you to participate in the inaugural Coral Springs Together Walk!
The National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association is joining forces with local organizations like ours across the U.S. to launch TOGETHER WALKS in 2016 to raise fibromyalgia awareness and research funding. Passionate Leaders have already taken the lead for 2016 in Richmond, Portland, Coral Springs, Louisville, and a Virtual Online Walk.
Your voice matters in changing how fibromyalgia is perceived, treated, and researched. Simply invite your family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, along with health and elected officials to come stroll, walk, learn, meet others, and support funding for fibromyalgia research at the Together Walk – Coral Springs 1K Walk on May 15! TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Through research/innovation seed funding raised at Together Walks, new exploration in areas such as small fiber neuropathy, cervical cord compression, and myofascial release may bring promising new treatments.
Fibromyalgia is a life-altering condition affecting 2-4% of women, men and children of all backgrounds worldwide to suffer. (That’s 10 million Americans alone.) The disorder can strike suddenly or occur as a gradual increase in symptoms, indicating changes in the central nervous system (neuroplasticity). Sensory information (such as light, sound, and touch) becomes amplified by the CNS, causing the brain to respond with increasing pain and symptoms. FM severity waxes and wanes; often increases over time; and may become disabling.
The Florida Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Network thanks you for your continuing support and looks forward to walking with you. If you are interested in getting involved or volunteering with the Together Walk in Coral Springs please contact us at: FloridaFibro@gmail.com or sign up at Volunteer Spot.
Can you imagine what can be done together when there is a walk in every state and across the globe? If you are interested in hosting a Together Walk in 2017, please contact the NFMCPA at email@example.com.
