2020 Walk Strong to Cure JM - Houston

Thank you for the amazing 2020 Walk Strong Houston on February 8, 2020.

Houston was our only Chapter to have a walk before COVID-19 - amazing results and so much fun.  Thank You Houston Families.   

Since all of the other 2020 Walks were cancelled due to COVID-19, we are pleased to announce an exciting new event, the Walk Strong Across America.  The Walk Strong Across America will bring all chapters and families of Cure JM in all 50 states together for one big walk on July 4, 2020.

We invite you to walk wherever is safe on or before July 4, 2020 -- at home, in your yard, or neighborhood.

The COVID-19 crisis has shown us that now more thanever, we need to move Juvenile Myositis research forward.  COVID-19 increased the vulnerabilit of children and teens with JM who receive treatements that suppress their immune systems.  That's why we are as committed as ever to our mission to find better treatments and a cure.

If you missed the Houston walk or want to get involved everyone is welcome!
