About This Activity

The Caterpillar Walk/Run program is a fundraising campaign designed to raise awareness and support for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain. The event  is a USTAF sanctioned event on a USTAF certified course.  Official timing will be handled by Rock Race Timing.

100% of proceeds will benefit the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America (FCSA) in the introduction of a Center of Excellence Program, which will offer immediate support to those living with Fibromyalgia and their families. Current fundraising efforts by other organizations support long term solutions to fibromyalgia which are necessary and vital however, for those living with fibromyalgia there are no immediate care initiatives. The FCSA Fibromyalgia Center of Excellence will be dedicated entirely to helping those living with fibromyalgia, and will support the introduction of new treatment and therapies as they are developed by other research initiatives.

One of the greatest challenges of this syndrome is the lack of awareness and supportive services available for people living with this chronic illness and their families. Your participation in this 5k Run/1mile fun walk will help us make Fibromyalgia visible. Our goal is to help bring the Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain community together.
