unite@night supports local CSF Chapters, as well as large-scale research and education projects to benefit the over one million families in the United States, alone, who suffer everyday from Chiari malformation, syringomyelia and related disorders.
unite@night is a one-mile, casual evening walk in various locations around the country (and the world!) during the month of June. These walks bring together people who are suffering with the devastating effects of Chiari, syringomyelia, and related disorders. You only need to walk as far and raise as much as you can. Every step and every dollar counts!
Don't forget to bring your awareness colors to the walk-- whether it's purple for Chiari, blue for syringomyelia, zebra for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and so on. Let's paint these walk sites with awareness colors!!

2014 unite@night: black & gold Strong
Last year's unite@night walks were a huge success and so much fun! Friends and families got together and raised some serious awareness by goingBlack & Gold Strong.
Most people who suffer from Chiari or syringomyelia will tell you: their conditions are not simple. Often, there exists a wide array of related disorders, including idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), hydrocephalus, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), and dysautonomia, just to name a few. By wearing black and gold, thousands of walkers around the country helped show support and solidarity for everyone who suffers from ANY of these disorders.
