Michael Pesa's Conquer Chiari Walk Across America Page
The Conquer Chiari Walk Across America is an annual fundraising and awareness event comprised of a series of local walks held on the 3rd and 4th Saturday of September.
In 2018, the event was held at 73 locations, involved more than 7,000 participants, and raised over $370,000 for research and other patient centered programs. The 12th annual walk will be held on September 21st and 28th 2019. We are proud to say that, to date, we have funded over $3.7 million in Chiari research. As always, it is our goal to have at least one walk in every state.
Message from Michael:
Please support me in the Conquer Chiari Walk Across America in memory of my beloved wife, Heidi Donnelly-Pesa. If it wasn't for Chiari Malformation, Heidi would still be with us today. Your donation can help prevent others from suffering the same heartbreak Heidi's family has endured. Also, please contact me if you want to join the walk in person. Thank you so much.
