7,000 Mile Rare Movement

The 7,000 Mile Rare Movement is a new and exciting virtual campaign hosted by the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) as part of Rare Disease Day™. The campaign challenges YOU to join other advocates in the rare disease community in seeking pledge dollars to walk, run or bike 7,000 miles collectively throughout the month of February.

Will you pledge your support to raising awareness for rare diseases?


Become a Rare Mover

Register for NORD’s virtual movement challenge by selecting a team based on the initiatives you would like your donations to support, and then create your personal fundraising campaign all on our PLEDGEIT website. Walkers, runners and bikers of all experience levels are welcome!
