Conquer Chiari Walk Across America


The Conquer Chiari Walk Across America is scheduled this Saturday, September 22 at Quinsippi Island.

Registration starts at 4 p.m. while the walk starts at 6:30 p.m.

Chiari Malformation is a serious neurological disorder where the bottom part of the brain, the cerebellum, descends out of the skull and crowds the spinal cord.

It puts pressure on both the brain and spine, and disrupting the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid.

The symptoms can be severe, debilitating and sometimes life threatening.

There is no cure.

Saturday's walk will raise money for the Conquer Chiari Research Center located in Akron, Ohio.

Although the walk is free, good will donations will be accepted.
