Kansas RSD Awareness
Running Rocker with RSD

Walk, Run, & Rock for a cure!

We will add information as often as we can, so check back periodically.

There is a volunteer meeting Saturday the 27th at 9am at the fairgrounds. If you are signed up to be a volunteer, or if you would like to volunteer during this event, please be at this meeting. We want everyone to know where they need to be and when, and what their jobs will be.

We want to thank all of you who want to help us with this event. Your participation will help to make this a fun and safe event for the community.

Help us support RSD awareness and research
We need your help.

Our goal is to raise public awareness of RSD and Chronic pain that many suffer from, and so far, none can cure. We hope to raise awareness by bringing together the people who suffer from RSD and educating others by telling their story at the Run, Walk, and Rock Event. Plus, we are going to have some really great bands, vendors, food, and an 8.9k run.

And we are raising money for an organization which is dedicated to expanding RSD awareness and research, The RSDSA. Please go to their website and read about the wonderful work they are doing.

Here is where we need your help, your donation will help fund the RSDSA. 85% of your donation goes to the RSDSA, 5% is held to help local individuals with RSD who need financial assistance getting to and from a specialist, or who needs special equipment which they are unable to purchase themselves, the other 10% goes toward putting on the Walk, Run, and Rock for a Cure Event and basic admin fees.

And then join us on April 27th in Saint Francis, KS for the Walk, Run, and Rock for a Cure Event, where you can listen to the stories of people from around the country, and from our home town who have RSD and Chronic pain. Talk to them and learn about how this condition has affected their lives, and how your awareness of this condition helps us move closer to a cure.
