Conquer Chiari Walk Across America continues to grow every year. The growth and overall success of the event could not be realized without our many organizers and volunteers. They are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers family and friends, and many are Chiari patients in different stages of progression and recovery. They spend many months planning and preparing for their walks, some from hospital rooms during recovery from their own decompression surgery, or sitting by the bedside of a child in recovery from surgery. Conquer Chiari appreciates the passion and efforts of every one of our volunteers. We thank them for continuing to make a difference in the community and in the future of patients not yet diagnosed.
