Walkers_on_Path–1050x400

Be a Part of this Historic Year! The 10th Annual Walk for EB!!!

The 2017 Walk for EB will be taking place on Saturday, May 13 at Miami Whitewater Forest (Main Shelter area). In its 9-year history, the Walk for EB has helped to spread great awareness about this relatively unknown, debilitating skin disease. Awareness is so very important…We believe awareness about EB will change lives…awareness extends the path of people who can support efforts to help EB families and fund research needed for a cure.

In addition, the Walk for EB has raised a total of $190,000 to help financially support organizations committed to research and the care of EB patients and their families. Be a part of this historic year as we look to cross the $200,000 mark for financial support!!!

Donations: There is NO COST to participate, but donations will be accepted to benefit the EB Hope Foundation. To make a donation in advance of the walk, make checks payable to the EB Hope Foundation, and mail to:

Our Inspirations!

Carson and Kolbe Kissell, the sons of Kristy & David, were born with a rare genetic skin disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). Inspired by these little boys so full of life, family and friends started the Walk for EB in 2008 with the hopes of making a positive impact on awareness, efforts to find a cure, and support for EB families.

We hope you will invite your family and friends, and be a part of this year’s Walk for EB on May 13!
