IDF Walk for Primary Immunodeficiency (PI), an initiative of the Immune Deficiency Foundation, unites all members of the PI community to help create better lives for those living with these rare, chronic diseases. Because part of their immune system is either missing or functions improperly, people with PI face an increased vulnerability to infections, endure recurrent health problems, and often develop serious illnesses throughout their entire lives. They deserve better, and you can help!
Founded in 1980, IDF is the national nonprofit patient organization dedicated to improving the diagnosis, treatment and quality of life of people with primary immunodeficiency diseases, or PI, through advocacy, education and research. Since 2013, IDF Walk for PI has brought together the PI community to support the critical work of IDF by raising funds and spreading awareness. The dollars raised by IDF Walk for PI ensure that IDF can continue to:
- Provide educational resources and programs at no cost to individuals and families.
- Power critical patient-focused research that will ultimately lead to cures of all types of PI.
- Lead the way in grassroots advocacy and fight to improve diagnosis and access to treatment.
- Bring together the entire PI community to remind them that they are not alone.
With each step you take with us, we are creating better lives and ultimately getting closer to cures for all types of PI.
