Walk Strong to Cure JM Southern California,

Griffith Park, Los Angeles, California, United States Griffith Park, Los Angeles, California, United States

  • About the event

    This is our 1st Annual "Walk Strong to Cure JM" Southern California event.  The event features a one mile family fun walk, food,  entertainment, games and prizes.  It will be a fun family event for all ages. 

    All proceeds benefit Cure JM Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to finding a cure for Juvenile Myositis, a life-threatening disease which causes the body’s own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues. It can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more.   And there is no cure....YET!

    But with support from friends, family and the community, we’re getting closer to better treatments and a cure.  Your support now will keep that momentum going.

    Why should you sponsor?

    We desparately need better treatments and a cure.

    Juvenile Myositis (JM), including Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM) and Juvenile Polymyositis(JPM), is a group of rare and life-threatening autoimmune diseases, in which the body's immune system attacks its own cells and tissues. 

    Since its inception, Cure JM has invested more money into Juvenile Myositis research and programs than any other charitable organization. Cure JM Foundation is the leading global nonprofit organization funding Juvenile Myositis research, having invested over $12 million in Juvenile Myositis research and programs and supported over 160 research studies to accelerate the pace of research.  Thank you for making research possible!

    Cure JM Foundation believes in effectively stewarding every dollar and over 90% of all funds raised since Cure JM’s inception has gone directly to research and educational programs. Cure JM is also proud to have been a “Top Rated” nonprofit by Great Nonprofits each year since 2011. Additionally, in 2015, Cure JM received the Independent Charities “Best in America” Seal of Excellence that is only given to 0.2% of over 1 million nonprofits in the U.S. This seal is awarded on an annual basis to charities that meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness.

    My name is Lauren Griffiths Alvord.  After working at Intel Corporation for 32 years, I retired and started supporting Cure JM.  My dear friends lost their son, Mason, at the age of 10 to JM. I now spend all my spare time helping Cure JM set up Walk Strong to Cure JM events across the U.S. so Cure JM can fund necessary research.   It would be an honor to gain more sponsors for our events - both dollar donations and in-kind.
