Together, We Are Changing the Future

Hey everyone!

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!

Our combined efforts fund critical programs & resources for the PI community.

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.

Together, we are making a difference. Together, we can change the future for people with PI.

It's always an honor to meet members of the PI community around the country. I look forward to seeing you in 2017! Don't forget to follow me, TZ the IDF Zebra, on Instagram and Twitter.
