THE STORY:

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 info@fmcpaware.org.
