The first Team K.I.S.S (KICK IN TO STOP SARCOIDOSIS) CLEVELAND 5K/1M WALK FOR SARCOIDOSIS AWARENESS, sponsored by the Cleveland Clinic is Saturday, April 21st, at Wade Oval in University Circle. Registration/check in begins at 9 am and the walk kicks off at 10 am. You can participate to help improve the lives of Sarcoidosis patients looking for answers to this terrible disease. Dress as your favorite Superhero or wear purple to celebrate our Sarcoidosis Warriors at this fun, family oriented walk to raise awareness of Sarcoidosis while raising funds for the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research to find a cure.

You’ll enjoy views of the Cleveland Museum of Art lagoons for the one mile walk or continue on for the 5K walk around Severance Hall, home of the world renowned Cleveland Orchestra, past the Cleveland Botanical Gardens and back to Wade Oval for the post walk celebration. Either way you’ll cross the finish line to cheers.

What better way to spend this spring day enveloped in the beauty of Cleveland’s cultural center then walking with family and friends, uniting to make a difference for the 200,000 people in the U.S. affected by this rare disease.

With each step we take let’s celebrate the progress we’re making towards a cure at the Cleveland 5K/1M Walk for Sarcoidosis Awareness. To learn more, donate and/or register go to www.stopsarcoidosis.rallybound.org. Cost is $30 for adults, kids under 10 are free.

Sarcoidosis, (SAR-COY-DOE-SIS), is an inflammatory disease that can affect almost any organ in the body. It occurs when a person’s immune system overreacts resulting in the formation of granulomas, microscopic clumps of inflammatory cells. When too many of these clumps or clusters form in an organ they can interfere with the structure and function of that organ. The lungs and lymph nodes are most commonly involved. Symptoms can be devastating and can lead to death.

Sarcoidosis is classified as a rare disease with no known cause and no known cure. Raising awareness of Sarcoidosis will not only help advance research and patient support programming, but also help patients feel like their voices are finally being heard.

The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research, FSR, is the nation’s leading non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for this disease and to improving care for Sarcoidosis patients.
