2016 Together Walk Louisville

EVENT DATE: MAY 15, 2016

EVENT LOCATION: Brown-Forman Lawn, Waterfront Park, Louisville, KY

YOU grabbed a pair of walking shoes, rolled up your sleeves, and met others who want to make a difference.  It was time to make fibromyalgia visible in historic Louisville, Kentucky! The Kentuckiana Fibromyalgia Support Group  invited you to participate in the inaugural Louisville Together Walk and you did!



The National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association has joined forces with local organizations like ours across the U.S. to launch TOGETHER WALKS in 2016 to raise fibromyalgia awareness and research funding.  Passionate Leaders have already taken the lead for 2016 in Louisville, Richmond, Portland, Coral Springs and a Virtual Online Walk. Your voice matters in changing how fibromyalgia is perceived, treated, and researched.  You invited your family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, along with health and elected officials to come stroll, walk, learn, meet others, and support funding for fibromyalgia research at the Together Walk – Louisville 5K/1K/Stroll Walk on May 15!




Through research/innovation seed funding raised at Together Walks, new exploration in areas such as small fiber neuropathy, cervical cord compression, and myofascial release may bring promising new treatments.







Fibromyalgia is a life-altering condition affecting 2-4% of women, men and children of all backgrounds worldwide to suffer.  (That’s 10 million Americans alone.)  The disorder can strike suddenly or occur as a gradual increase in symptoms, indicating changes in the central nervous system (neuroplasticity).  Sensory information (such as light, sound, and touch) becomes amplified by the CNS, causing the brain to respond with increasing pain and symptoms.  FM severity waxes and wanes; often increases over time; and may become disabling.
