*Update:  Kit Ooraikul (GBS Patient), Jordan Helm, and Dennis Alyward will be part of the 5 person, 5km each, team!! Holly and team have almost reached their goal. Let's surprise this team and add to their growing support!! 

GBS/CIDP Foundation of Canada is proud of our Edmonton GBS Liaison, Holly Gerlach, author of 'Happily Ever After' and Jenny Rybie, a two time survivor of GBS, that will represent GBS/CIDP Foundation of Canada in a team to build awareness and support for our Canadian GBS-CIDP-MMN and variant disorder community in the upcoming 5km marathon , The NERD Run, in Edmonton, AB on Saturday, Sep 16, 2017 at Walterdale Park.

These GBS Survivors have made great strides in their recovery and will use their fitness to help the foundation meet our vision for the future:

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.

20% of monies raised through their efforts will be donated to NERD and the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute (NMHI) in support of neurology and peripheral nerve research.

Volunteers, Marilyn Rose and Glenanne Ball, will man a foundation booth at The NERD Run to help raise awareness. Come out and say 'Hello' and support the Holly and team as they cross the finish line!

Holly, Jenny, and GBS/CIDP Foundation of Canada,

Thank you for your generous support!
