Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this 2020 walk is cancelled. But the work our team does is still as critical as ever! Please join us with a donation today in support of our work.

Money raised from Take a Walk in Our Genes supports families who have financial and insurance limitations with needed medications and testing. In 2019, this walk raised over $50,000 and this past year, thanks to supporters like you, we were able to provide assistance to over two dozen families.
