Why raise funding for research?

New and young investigators are needed in fibromyalgia and pain research. Seed funding for research raised at events is competitively awarded by the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association (NFCPA). Our brightest hope for a better tomorrow for ourselves, our children, and grandchildren is research for a cure and effective treatments. 

Fighting fibromyalgia and pain together

Why Together Walks and Events?

Together Walks and Awareness Events commemorate May 12 Fibromyalgia Awareness Day and September Pain Awareness Month either in-person or virtually. Together we raise money for research by fundraising, friend raising, and increasing awareness of the fight against fibromyalgia and pain in long-term illnesses in your community.

Proud of the fibromyalgia proclamation

You are the key to positive change!

No one is going to do this hard work for us.  It’s never worked that way.  Standing together, speaking with a united voice, and working to achieve common goals is powerful.  It’s up to you! You are the key to making fibromyalgia and pain in lingering illnesses visible. Together we make a difference. Join others for fun, tips, and success.

Together Walks are a family affair.

The HUB promotes all awareness events

NFCPA collaborates with many organizations to educate and raise awareness.  If you’re group is sponsoring an event, we want everyone to know about it.  Even if NFCPA is not part of it.  The entire pain community benefits when more visibility is created.  Uniting our efforts to support people affected by long-term pain matters. Let’s do it.

What is a virtual community event?

Virtual and community events (VCE) are for everyone everywhere to have the opportunity to help fundraise for research, increase visibility and build friendships in their real (local) or online community. The events are referred to as “virtual” due to the common factor of being fundraising events organized online.  

Hosting an event, or finding one nearby, is not always possible. No matter how big or small, with a VCE you can be a champion in this important global work in a way that equals your ability and wellness level.  A VCE gives you the flexibility to participate, get in shape, and support the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association’s patient-centered research program, and also receive a “You Are Key” award.

Perhaps you’ll chose a virtual race with registration to run, roll, or walk all or part of a distance in multiple segments at a personal pace–or against another virtual team–around a local park with friends, or on a treadmill, or wherever, to participate in any capacity.  If that seems too much right now, you  can still earn a “You are Key” award by organizing a local event or being a team captain and finding participants for your team to raise research funding. Now more than ever before, we can make painful illnesses visible through online and local event fundraisers. Start your own VCE by clicking HERE!
