It’s up to you to help us reach our Goal!
New this year!! We’ve changed things up a bit in an effort to reduce registration fees to enable you to grow your walk teams, to raise more dollars for TTP research. Here’s what’s new:
2016 Walk Button! Each registered walk participant will receive a 2016 Walk Button to pin on their shirt from the 2015 Walk to Answer TTP. Collect your buttons each year and proudly display them on your shirt to demonstrate your continued commitment to TTP.
Thunderstix! Make some Noise while you walk. All registered team captains will receive a set of thunder sticks for each of their team members. Have some fun by calling attention to your group as you walk! Tell them why you’re walking!
T-Shirt Creative! New to the Walk this year? We’ll share our t-shirt creative with you after you register. Simply email Events@AnsweringTTP.org to make the request.
In 2015 we raised over $47,000 a thanks to 257 international participants, including 20 teams. Top fundraising team was won by Walking for Trevor. Top individual fundraiser award was won by Rhonda Keay. The Spirit award was won by Annie's Army. Walk individually, or learn more about how to form your team here.
Walk with other local walkers. To be connected with other walkers in your area, please email Events@AnsweringTTP.org by September 10, 2016. You must have already registered for the event to be connected with other walkers.
A TTP, Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, diagnosis is scary and complex. Many patients have never heard of this 3 letter acronym before, nor have they any idea as to its ramifications. TTP is a medical emergency causing small blood clots and potentially fatal complications. Early diagnosis is key to survival. TTP can strike anyone, at any stage of life. Three in one million people are diagnosed each year. Symptoms include: fatigue, fever, diarrhea, chest pain, bleeding, dark urine, confusion, headaches, visual changes, bruising, purpura, petechiae.
Research is Hope. Awareness is Low. Early Diagnosis is Key.
