On Sunday, July 31, 2016, we'll be walking and bike riding for a cause dear to our hearts - raising money for research into Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP). FOP causes muscles, ligaments and tendons to become converted to bone, locking joints and preventing movement. Though FOP is very rare, scientists have made great strides in developing medicines to treat the condition. In fact, the potential FOP drug Palovarotene is currently in Phase 2 clinical testing! We DESPERATELY want an effective treatment for FOP, so we hope you'll donate to our cause.

We'd also love it if you'd join us at our Walk on July 31. Please feel free to simply show up; no need to "register" ahead of time unless you'd like to set up your own page on this site to raise funds yourself (and in that case, click on our "Register for Walk" tab).

Funds raised will benefit the Canadian FOP Network (CFOPN), a registered charity in Canada. The CFOPN provides over 80% of funds raised directly to research for FOP.

Tax receipts will be provided by CFOPN for donations of $20.00 or over.
