Chicago Organizer

A big THANK YOU to the Chicagoland Allies Against Pain and event director Debbie Fetzner Nunez.

This is the first annual walk for the Chicagoland area which makes this SUPER exciting.

Imagine getting to watch this event grow every year… to be a part of the beginning of something huge… to have so many supporters that the first venue is too small to hold all the participants. How would that make you feel? To be part of something that awesome would be hard to stay away from. Together we can make a difference and make fibromyalgia visible.

So are you intrigued, ready to do this, and jump on board? Then go ahead and volunteer or contact the Chicago team at 2017chicagofibrowalk@gmail.com or 815-514-0046.
