Baltimore 2012Recap: Cure JM 2012 Annual Conference and Fundraiser

Thank You! Our Goal was Achieved!

Cure JM would like to thank all Team JM members and all of our supporters for helping to make our 2012 Annual Conference and Fundraiser a huge success. We raised over $200,000 in net proceeds for research funding which will go towards our 2013 JM research efforts.

This year's event took place in Baltimore in conjunction with the Baltimore running festival and marathon. Over 150 Team JM runners participated on race day, and over 70 JM families volunteered before and during the event to raise awareness and raise funds for JM research.

Prior to race day, Cure JM hosted an educational event for the medical community at Johns Hopkins. On Friday, October 12th, JM specialists updated JM families on research progress and conducted a Q & A panel. That evening, a dinner event included a special recognition ceremony honoring many JM families who have really made a difference in the fight to cure JM. We will highlight all of these special Cure JM Heros and specially recognized JM families in upcoming Cure JM newsletters.

Please check out the column to the right for the research presentations made by the JM specialists and photos of the event.

In the next month or so, we will soon announce the location for our Cure JM conference for 2013 -- a very special event as we will be celebrating Cure JM's 10th anniversary!
