5th Annual Caterina Grace Walk 2023

On Sunday October 15th we held our 5th Annual Caterina Grace Foundation Walk for Life at Eisenhower Park raising awareness and funding for the rare and devastating disease, Nemaline Myopathy. We are OVERJOYED to share this was our BEST WALK YET with nearly 500 people in attendance and raising over $40,000!!!! We are forever grateful that so many people take time out of their days once a year to join us for this cause that continues to be a beacon of hope and light for us and families affected by this disease.

A tremendous thank you to our board members – Karen Beck, Colleen Gallagher-Cavaliere, Wendy Hetson Ehrlich, and Scott Wolke. Without them the undertaking needed in planning this event would not be possible. Your commitment means the world to us.
