The purpose of this event is two-fold:
–To make people aware of this devastating illness
–To raise money for research
All the tax deductible proceeds will go to the National Fibromyalgia Association, a non-profit [501(c)(3)] organization whose mission is to develop and execute programs dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with fibromyalgia.
Recent research has found that fibromyalgia is a chronic pain illness resulting from disordered sensory processing characterized by widespread pain, fatigue and various neurological symptoms. It is estimated that over 10 million Americans of all nationalities and ages suffer from this debilitating syndrome.
