ABOUT IDF WALK FOR PI
IDF Walk for Primary Immunodeficiency (PI), an initiative of the Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF), unites Immunocompromised Americans to include members of the PI community to help improve the quality of life for those living with these rare, chronic disorders. Because part of their immune system is either missing or functions improperly, the Immunocompromised including those living with PI face an increased vulnerability to infections, endure recurrent health problems, and often develop serious illnesses throughout their entire lives. The pandemic has highlighted the health inequity facing the Immunocompromised. They deserve better and together we can make a difference!
IDF Walk for PI is first and foremost an awareness campaign to champion the Immunocompromised to include those living with PI. Secondly, the initiative is a fundraising campaign to fund much-needed research, advocacy, and services aimed at shortening the time to diagnosis and improving the access to quality and affordable healthcare.
Our events offer a fun-filled day of walking and much more at family-friendly locations that invite all to linger longer to learn more about our mission. On top of this, you can receive important information from our sponsors, a community that shares a commitment to the Immunocompromised.
Register for IDF Walk for PI and invite family, friends, and coworkers to join in on the fun! Create a team to make a larger impact and increase the excitement!
