GBS/CIDP Foundation of Canada is pleased to inform you we are collaborating with the Neuro Mental Health Institute in their upcoming NERD Run. Being held in Edmonton, AB on Sunday, June 9th at Rundle Park. There will be a 2.5 km walk, 5 km walk or run, or 10 km run.

GBS/CIDP Foundation of Canada is inviting the GBS-CIDP-MMN community to sign up for the event to support the NMHI and to walk for the foundation as a Walk and Roll Team to help raise awareness.

If you are not able to attend, you can still create a team to raise money - visit CanadaHelps at:

20% of monies raised through these efforts will be donated to NERD and the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute (NMHI) in support of neurology and peripheral nerve research. The balance will be donated to the GBS/CIDP Foundation of Canada to assist with ongoing programs.

It is the Foundation's mission that every person affected by GBS, CIDP or variants such as MMN will have access to early and accurate diagnosis, expert interdisciplinary treatment and support, and through continued research a cure will be developed.

Volunteers will be running the GBS/CIDP Foundation Booth at The NERD Run to help raise awareness. Come out and say 'Hello' and support our participants as they cross the finish line!

Thank you for your generous support!
