EVENT: Together Walk Nashville
EVENT DATE: May 14, 2016
Grab your walking shoes, roll up your sleeves, and meet others who want to make a difference. It’s time to make fibromyalgia visible in Nashville! The Fibro Friends of Tennessee invite you to participate in the inaugural Nashville Together Walk!
Fibro Friends of Tennessee, in collaboration with the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association, is delighted to host a Together Walk. Come and meet others who share your desire to make a difference! Please invite your family, friends, colleagues, elected officials, and healthcare providers to a fun event to raise awareness and research funding for fibromyalgia. Your voice matters in changing how fibromyalgia is perceived, treated, and researched. 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 Fibro Friends of Tennessee thank you for your continuing support and look forward to walking with you. If you are interested in getting involved or volunteering with the Together Walk in Nashville, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
