2017 Indiana MG Walk at White River State Park

Join us for the 2017 Indiana MG Walk at White River State Park on Sunday, September 10. Check-in for the event will begin at 9:00am and the Walk Ceremony will start at 10am. All participants are encouraged to start a team and register online at www.MGWalk.org/Indiana and fundraise to help support the MG Community and the mission of the MGFA. The Indianapolis Medical Society is a proud sponsor of this event.

The MG Walk Campaign is the flagship national awareness and fundraising campaign for the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America. Since it started in 2011, the Walk has raised a remarkable $4 million to help fund research for better treatments, much needed programs and services, education and awareness to the public, and an increase in advocacy efforts. MG is a rare and chronic neuromuscular autoimmune disease affecting tens of thousands of people. The MG Walk Campaign continues to bring together those in the MG Community to talk about their experiences and grow the resources and awareness desperately needed.

Third Annual Brain Bolt 5K

The Neurosurgery Foundation at Goodman Campbell will be hosting its Third Annual Brain Bolt 5K on Saturday, October 7 at the Carmel Gazebo in Carmel, IN. This year’s race will again celebrate and raise support for survivors of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Goodman Campbell hopes to have TBI survivors participate in this family-friendly event along with the general public. The 2016 Brain Bolt 5K raised more than $59,000 to support TBI research projects, a patient follow-up clinic for after-injury care, and Goodman Campbell neurotrauma databases. Goodman Campbell and the IMS are aiming to greatly surpass last year’s effort.
