After a very successful event, raising over $45,000, I decided to plan my second 5k walk/run this June with another fighter, Linda McGuirl, to find a cure and help rid this world of ITP. Linda and I were both diagnosed at 21, and although we are decades apart in age, we both take strong pride in raising awareness and taking control of ITP. Riding the roller coaster in the world of ITP is so much better when you’re not riding alone.

Don’t let your compassion stop at wishing to see others free from suffering. Do something.

Registration/Check-in will begin at 12:00pm and the event will begin at 12:30pm at the Livingston Oval in Livingston, NJ on Sunday, June 8th.

If you can’t make it to the run but you would still like to be a part of raising itp Awareness, you can join the dicussion on Instagram.  Lots of itp patients are spreading the itp awareness love at Hashtag #itpawareness!  Share your photos today.
