As you know, IDF Walk for Primary Immunodeficiency 2016 was a walk season to remember! Last year, I traveled to 12 cities and joined 4,000 participants on more than 400 teams in uniting against PI. With the help of more than 300 volunteers, 2 community walks and our sponsors, we were able to build an even stronger community and raise more than $1.1 million!
Did you know that because of IDF Walk for PI we were able to establish the IDF Research Grant? This program is fully funded by dollars raised through IDF Walk for PI. In fact, this past fall we awarded the first grant to Sonia Sharma, PhD of La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology to help support clinical research of PI. A second round of grants will be awarded in the first half of 2017.
