2017 Houston Walk for Victory
Join us for the Houston Walk for Victory and help us raise awareness and advance the life-saving work of The Marfan Foundation. Marfan syndrome is a potentially life-threatening genetic disorder, but people can live a normal lifespan if they are diagnosed and treated. Otherwise, they are at risk of sudden early death due to a tear in their aorta, the large artery that takes blood away from the heart. Alarmingly, medical experts say that half of those with Marfan syndrome are not diagnosed and are at risk.
Our nationwide walk program focuses on community and puts the FUN in fundraising! Grab a friend, join a team, start your own team or donate to a walker and help us achieve victory.
Get ready for some fun on March 25, 2017! Enjoy a leisurely walk with other affected families and friends and then celebrate with some snacks, music, games, and prizes!
