unite@night – UNLOCKING ANSWERS VIRTUALLY

unite@night Chiari walk is a collection of one-mile, casual evening walks around the country that bring together people who are living with the devastating effects of Chiari malformation, syringomyelia, and related disorders. These walks help support local Chapters, large-scale research and education efforts and ongoing awareness projects that benefit the families in the United States and abroad who suffer every single day from these disorders.

When you raise money for the Bobby Jones CSF unite@night Chiari walks, you are raising important funding for education and awareness programs, as well as groundbreaking research in the fields of Chiari malformation, syringomyelia and all related disorders.

2020 Recognition Prize List

*These prizes are available to ALL unite@night walkers. If you participate in a Solo Walk, you are equally as eligible to win any of the above prizes as a group walker!

How do I raise money for my Virtual Walk?

You can call on friends, family, neighbors, co-workers (whomever!) for small donations to support your cause. For example, you can try the “pay it forward” technique. Recruit 10 people to donate $25 to your walk and ask them to recruit 10 people to do the same, you have just raised $2,500 for your walk, with practically no work!

How are donations collected?

You will be able to use the Classy fundraising website, just as anyone participating in a group walk would OR set up a Facebook Fundraiser! You may ask people to donate online and credit you directly, or they are able to send in a check or money order made payable to “Bobby CSF” to the address below. You are discouraged from sending cash in the mail: it’s just not safe! If you have collected your donations in cash (since most people do donate this way), please convert that cash to a cashier’s check and mail it in! For assistance on how to do so, pay a visit to your bank and talk to the local teller.

Make checks payable to “Bobby CSF” and send to:
