Circle 2 Dates on Your Calendar: May 4, 2014 & May 4, 2019



It’s time to rally The Johnnie Walkers for our annual Walk on Sunday, May 4th to raise funds and awareness of the research at The Myelin Repair Foundation.

The MRF has set the goal of having an FDA-approved REPAIR therapeutic on the market by Saturday, May 4th 2019. That’s in 5 short years! The MRF has met all their milestones on their timeline since its inception in 2004.

“Given the fact that remyelination has quickly become the new vanguard for Multiple Sclerosis treatment”

It’s been quite a year already.  In January, a new partnership was created with The National Institutes of Health to develop a clinical trial for a compound called MRF-008. This compound is a generic drug that the MRF academic research consortium identified as a potential candidate to protect and repair myelin in MS patients. Since MRF-008 is already FDA-approved for another disease indication, the MRF and the NIH see a tremendous opportunity to investigate the repurposing of this drug with its known safety profile. Repurposing takes years off the clinical trial protocol.

Join us and be part of our team; walk and donate on Sunday, May 4th in Lincolnshire.  At 10:30 am we will start a 4 mile neighborhood walk,starting and finishing at our house. Then spend the afternoon of camaraderie and a backyard picnic with us. Bring your friends.

If you can’t make the trip join our group by donating online through Pay It Square or by writing a check:
