Stepping Towards a Cure, Together!
2022 Virtual Walk ‘n’ Wheel for Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome
The LGS Foundation held its 7th Annual Walk ‘n’ Wheel for Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome on March 26th, 2022 to raise awareness and increase funding to accelerate research on Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS), a rare and often debilitating form of early-onset epilepsy. Approximately 1,000,000 children and adults worldwide have LGS.
Thank you for joining us
The 2022 annual #WalkForLGS raised over $48,000, nearly 78% of our $60k fundraising goal!
Although great strides have been made, more work needs to be done.
We are not done yet…
With only a tiny fraction of public and private funds going towards research on LGS, families of the more than one million people with LGS worldwide worry that lifesaving, stabilizing treatment may not come to fruition in their loved ones lifetime. The LGS Foundation’s Cure LGS 365 Research Grants Program is combating these fears.
“Patient families living with LGS work hard to raise funds that will advance research that matters most,” says Dr. Dixon-Salazar. “We want to help move the needle on LGS research, and this is our way of doing that. We hope many researchers will apply.”
It is not to late to get involved. Every dollar raised brings us one step closer to improving treatments and quality of life for those affected by Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome.
All proceeds benefit the LGS Foundation’s Finding the Cures, Together Program to advance research in Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome.
