FUNDRAISING PERK:

Raising $125 ensures that we can not only cover the cost of our walks but also increase what the Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) can achieve to improve the lives of those living with primary immunodeficiency (PI). Because of your support, IDF can continue to provide educational resources and programs at no cost to individuals and families, power critical-patient focused research, and lead the way in the fight to improve diagnosis and access to treatment.

While there is no fundraising minimum, participants are encouraged to raise $125 and more. You will receive recognition gifts when you meet certain milestones. Be sure to check out our Fundraising Resources for tips and suggestions on how to fundraise in your community and on social media!
