Due to COVID-19, this years annual Caterpillar Walk will kick off a little different than that of previous years. The FCSA will hosting a Virtual Event on Facebook on Saturday, May 9th, at 9am. This year’s theme is “Never Give Up.” As such, this event is dedicated to bringing together the fibromyalgia community despite the conditions we are all currently facing.
Fibromyalgia affects us all, one of the greatest challenges our community faces is lack of awareness (both within the medical community and the community at-large) which leads to isolation, fear, and depression. As the FCSA works to address the gaps in medical care and supportive services one of our biggest priorities is bringing our community together. Embracing our diversity. Celebrating our differences…and above all uniting our community.
There is strength in unity. We are One, United We Walk!
