Conquer Chiari Walk Across America by Paul Caponera, Fairfield CT

On Saturday, September 21st I  participated in the "Conquer Chiari Walk Across America" in Westbrook, Connecticut. The Connecticut  walk had over 175 walkers and we raised over $12,500. The walk had approximately 11,000 people across the U.S. raise more than $540,000.

Chiari is a serious neurological disorder where the bottom part of the brain, the cerebellum, descends out of the skull and crowds the spinal cord, putting pressure on both the brain and spine causing many symptoms. More than 300,000 people in the US are affected with Chiari.

The Conquer Chiari walk was a very rewarding experience, because it allowed me to meet my fellow Chiarians, and raise awareness and donations for such an important cause.
