How did all of this get started in LA?
In August of 2015, actress Haley Ramm and her mom Barbara, who is an autoimmune patient and now strong advocate, approached AARDA to see what they could do to help. When the AARDA staff asked if they would be willing to start a walk in LA they said "yes!" without hesitation. The Ramm family has cared for and helped so many people including other young actors that it took little time to assemble a crew willing to accept the challenge of creating this inaugural event in just 2 months. It was a huge success, raising over $100K!

Now Barbara and Haley continue their advocacy year-round and recently spoke at AARDA's National Summit in Washington D.C. on "How Autoimmune Disease Affects Families". Click here to view this moving testimony:

Linking Together for a Cure

We walk to raise awareness, and to honor and support family members, friends and colleagues who are battling one or more of the more than 100 autoimmune disorders. We walk to give hope to the 50 million affected nationwide.

Funds raised through the Autoimmune Walk will be used by AARDA to support critical research aimed at solving the underlying immune issues that link ALL autoimmune disorders. Our mission is to eradicate these serious and life-threatening diseases while providing help and hope through patient education and support services.
