Virtual Walkathon
for NKH

Walk in place as we shelter in place.

Turn steps into dollars for charity

Like many other organizations, we rely heavily on public events to raise money for NKH research. In light of our current global state, we decided to host a virtual "walk-a-thon" to raise funds for NKH research and awareness. Each Zoom the Room Team will host a Zoom meeting on their respective date. We will walk, ride, laugh, and enjoy the company of each other, from afar. We urge you to get involved in the first ever Zoom the Room and help us as we continue our fight to save the lives of hundreds of children around the world.
