Looking for ideas for raising more money for an upcoming cancer walk, MS bike ride, or other health-related charity event where you’ll be hitting the streets? Learn more about PatientsLikeMeInMotion! It’s a program that sponsors you and your team as you walk, run, cycle (etc.) with a nonprofit organization to raise funds and awareness for your disease or health condition (psst—PatientsLikeMe gear included). Read on!

PatientsLikeMeInMotion has grown a lot since we launched it back in 2009! Members have raised funds for cancer, multiple sclerosis, ALS, epilepsy, kidney disease, psoriasis, mental health and more (just take a peek at our Pinterest board).

In the first half of 2018, 73 members from 24 states and their teams have already participated and raised more than $18,000.

  1. I am raising money to get my 501C3 for Bilateral Schizencephaly ( a very rare brain disorder) . Once I have this, I can open a research endowment at OSU Wexner Medical Center. I have already raised approximately $200. I still need to raise more!
