Strides for CJD is an annual walk/run to raise awareness of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), a rare neurodegenerative disease that has no treatment or cure.

Through this event, anyone — anywhere — can pay tribute to their loved ones and raise funds for the CJD Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, to provide family support, medical education and research programs.

Established in 2015, this event has grown substantially with supporters participating in satellite locations and individual events across the United States.
