Check-in begins at 9 am Walk begins at 10 am
On behalf of the MGFA, and the guidance of our Medical Advisory Council, we have decided to host our MG Walks and fundraising season VIRTUALLY again this year. Although recent developments with vaccines have spurred hope and anticipation for a return to “normal,” we are still very much in a pandemic and the health and safety of our MG Community is paramount.
We cannot host in-person events and be confident that community members would not be at risk. Data to date suggests that MG patients appear to have a higher risk of severe COVID infections than the general population because treatments can leave them immunocompromised. As an organization, we cannot in good faith put those we serve in any type of harm’s way or risk of their health.
We strongly believe that raising funds should and will continue but not at the risk of any one person getting sick at an MGFA function. We will be back in touch with our plans for a Virtual 2021 Coast to Coast MG Walk.
You can still REGISTER NOW (using this current page) to join an existing team, or to start and Captain your own virtual walk team! All that’s left after that, is to customize your FREE personal fundraising page (in your participant center), share your connection to myasthenia gravis and start fundraising! To make your fundraising even easier, make sure to download the NEW FREE MGFA MG Walk App from your mobile device's App store!
We so very much appreciate your desire, passion, and commitment to support the MGFA. If you have questions, contact your team leader or MG Walk leader in your region.
