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.
Dr. Ances and his lab started the 1st Annual Strides for CJD in St. Louis in 2019 and we held the 2020 walk virtually. Stay tuned for information on the 2021 walk!
