April is Sarcoidosis Awareness Month!
Taking Steps to Raise Awareness
Throughout the month, we need you to join us by taking steps to help raise awareness for sarcoidosis and support our community as well as take steps to help us make progress in our work towards finding better treatments and a cure. Through our #WhatisSarcoidosis and #MakeItVisible initiative, our goal is to educate more people about sarcoidosis and connect with more people who want to join our movement and community.
During Sarcoidosis Awareness Month, April 1 – April 30, we invite all members of the community to walk, run, step, or hike all month long so that we can reach 61,250,000 steps collectively as a community or complete the equivalent of 21,500 miles! We invite you to take 175,000 steps throughout the month to represent the approximately 175,000 individuals living with sarcoidosis in the United States. This is just a little over 5,833 steps a day. If we can get 350 participants to reach our community goal will reach our 61,250,000 steps. Remember to get people to support you on this journey so we can reach the $61,250 goal to help us to accelerate groundbreaking sarcoidosis research and to grow our patient education and support.
To continue building on the #MakeItVisible theme, we encourage you to use a black and white photo for your Steps for Sarc profile picture and then update your story!
