With you every step of the way- PatientsLikeMeInMotion

Posted April 3rd, 2013 by

Many of you are helping to raise awareness about your conditions. You’re not only encouraging support and donations, you’re spreading knowledge and eliminating stigmas. We want to help support your disease awareness efforts too, with PatientsLikeMeInMotionTM.

InMotion

Over the years, we’ve sponsored hundreds of fundraising teams through our PatientsLikeMeInMotion program. Let us sponsor your team next as you walk or run with your local nonprofit organization to raise awareness for your disease. Your whole team will get free t-shirts to wear, a monetary donation and more!

“There is still no cure, but at least now, thanks to these fundraising events, there are advancements in patient care, and there is hope. We’re grateful to PatientsLikeMe for their continued support for events that raise awareness and funds for MS research.” – PatientsLikeMe member Judy

It may be winter now, but plans for next year’s disease-related fundraising events are underway.  The question is:  will you be taking part?

For inspiration, see Judy and Jim below in their bright blue PatientsLikeMeMe t-shirts before the start of Walk MS in Cranford, NJ, on April 15, 2012.  “When I was first diagnosed over 20 years ago, there were no therapies for MS patients and knowledge was limited,” says Judy.  “We’re grateful to PatientsLikeMe for their continued support for events that raise awareness and funds for MS research.”  She adds that the Cranford Walk MS event had “a large and enthusiastic turnout.”
