Kaila's Komfort hosted our first ever CRMO Awareness 5K in October 2017, which was the largest organized worldwide CRMO event to date. This year, Kaila's Komfort has teamed up with National University and their Student Nurses' Association to host the second annual CRMO Awareness Walk-A-Thon/5K on Sunday, October 7, 2018. This is a family event, where participants will walk locally at our event in San Diego, and will be joined virtually by supporters around the world as we walk together on the same day for the same cause - CRMO.
CRMO families, friends and supporters from all over the world can participate by walking, running, biking, skipping, wheeling (wheelchairs), or rolling at least 3.1 miles to raise awareness, and show support for our CRMO community. The Virtual CRMO Awareness Walk-A-Thon/5K is a virtual event, so you have the flexibility to participate wherever and whenever is most convenient for you! There are organized events in multiple cities around the world. Please check the Event Locations tab to find out if there is an event in your city. Locations will be added as they are coordinated. Please contact us here if you would like to plan an event in your area.
Thank you to the National University Student Nurses' Association for joining efforts with us this year to make this event bigger and better. One of our goals is to educate family, friends, current and future medical personnel, and the general public on CRMO. If you are in San Diego, join us for a Family Festival, which will have all kinds of fun activities and games, food trucks, booths, music, photo ops, a petting zoo, AND help us break the Guinness World Record for the worlds largest cake walk!
