The Alex Manfull Fund 5K Run/Walk
Things to do near Washington, DC » Benefits or Fundraisers » Other
The Alex Manfull Fund recognizes the mental health crisis plaguing our nation's youth and seeks to raise awareness, advance education of medical providers, and support more research to understand the role that infection and the immune system play in psychiatric disorders. Referred to by various names - post-infectious neuroimmune disorders, PANDAS, PANS, Autoimmune Encephalitis - these disorders look like mental illness but have a different cause and require different types of treatment to provide effective results and lasting recovery. These disorders, initially thought to only impact the pediatric population, are clearly also affecting adolescents and young adults at alarming rates and yet are very responsive to treatment when identified early.
Please support The Alex Manfull Fund by participating in our 5K event - run, walk, create a team to raise funds, or simply make a gift to help us realize our vision that no life ever again be cut short – or interrupted – by any post-infectious neuroimmune disorder.
