2024 Walk Strong

We’re walking for a brighter future! 

Cure JM families and friends are joining forces to Walk Strong together. Join the hundreds of Cure JM families who have taken steps toward better treatments and a cure.

Each walk features food, fun, and friendship as Cure JM families come together to celebrate the power of community and walk for a brighter future.  Walks feature fun for the whole family including children, teens, and young adults. 

The Walk Strong is also Cure JM’s signature fundraising event having raised more than $3.6 million dollars for JM research. Every dollar helps! 

Your participation drives our mission and helps ensure no promising research goes unfunded.
