The Washington DC Hope, Steps & A Cure Walk, a fundraising and awareness event to benefit the AA&MDSIF (http://www.aamds.org), will be held on Sunday, July 11, 2010 in Bethesda, Maryland, in association with the AA&MDSIF 2010 Patient & Family Conference. If you will be attending the conference or will be in the Washington area, don't miss this opportunity to connect with other patients and their families and friends and support the cause we all share.

The walk will follow the historic Capital Crescent Trail (http://www.cctrail.org/CCT_General_Info.htm), once the Georgetown Branch rail line of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.

There will be both a 1-mile route and a longer 3-mile route, both starting at the Bethesda Hyatt Regency, the conference hotel. Everyone is welcome to register and participate; you don't have to be a conference attendee.

Encourage your friends and family to sponsor a team at the Team Marrowforums fundraising page (http://www.firstgiving.com/marrowforums), by sponsoring another team at the AA&MDSIF Firstgiving page (http://www.firstgiving.com/aamds), or by starting your own team!
