Meet Other Cure JM Families at an Upcoming Event in Your Area

Since its inception in 2016, Walk Strong to Cure JM has raised more than $3 million to fund juvenile myositis research and programs. As promising treatments move into clinical trials, the need for research funding is greater than ever.

We are pleased to announce two easy ways to participate. 

  1. Walk from Home!   Walk from home on any day you choose between now and July 4.  Your participation will help us reach our goal to have families Walk from Home from 50 states. Register here!
  2. Attend an In-person Walk Near You!
