Join Us for Walk Strong Chicago

Join Cure JM families and friends from across the country at the Walk Strong to Cure JM, Chicago.   

Our goal is to raise $50,000 for juvenile myositis research.  To help us reach this goal, gifts will be matched by the Leetz Family Match.   

Your gift will:

  • Help kids get the best care
  • Pursue promising new treatments
  • Advance four clinical trials
  • Fund our new grant cycle, including investigating a new type of gene therapy

Checks can be made out to Cure JM and mailed to Cure JM, P.O. Box 45768, Baltimore, MD 21297, with the honoree and “Leetz Family Match” in the memo.

Thank you. Your gift gives children hope for better treatments, a brighter future, and a cure.

 

To walk with us: 

  • Walk in person.  Register and join us May 7, 2023  9-11a.m. at Warrenville, Illinois, at St. James Farm Forest Preserve.
  • Walk from home.  Register and walk from home as part of our state’s delegation on May 7th or with the National Walk on July 2nd.
