NEWS: JUNE ISN'T THE ONLY MONTH TO UNITE@NIGHT THIS YEAR!
Due to overwhelming calls for more walks and support, the 2016 unite@night walk season will now run beginning in May all the way through August!
That's 4 full months of awareness and advocacy that will help raise the much-needed funds to support educational programs for patients and medical professionals, alike, as well as critical research programs that help the experts (and the newbies!) in the field develop better treatment options for patients and families!
WHAT IS UNITE@NIGHT?
unite@night is a collection of one-mile, casual evening walks around the country that bring together people who are suffering with the devastating effects of Chiari, syringomyelia, and related disorders. unite@night supports local CSF Chapters, as well as large-scale research and education efforts that benefit the over one million families in the United States, alone, who suffer everyday from these disorders.
You only need to walk as far and raise as much as you can.
Every step and every dollar counts!

Chiari, syringomyelia or a related disorder can make a person feel powerless... whether that person is living with them, or watching someone they know struggle through the painful effects. What if you-- just YOU-- could be the one thing that makes their lives better? You have the opportunity...
You can BE the awareness they can't always spread on their own
You can BE the education for medical professionals that is so necessary in this field
You can BE the research advancements that will lead to less pain and better treatments
You can BE their hope for a happier future
You can embody HOPE when you unite@night with us between May and August of 2016, when we walk together in support of those who are struggling. This year, CSF has a very lofty goal to raise $1 million dollars for education and research!
