We had an amazing first annual X Strides Chicago on July 14, 2019.  Everyone that volunteered, ran, walked, organized a team, and donated made it a success. We were a force to be noticed that morning – raising awareness as people asked, What is Fragile X?

A special kudos to our top fundraiser, Samantha Pavey, our top team, Team Sam, and Rushing for FX, the team with the most number of team members (27). And, of course, all of the volunteers who made this possible, including Jen Barber who came all the way from Minnesota!

There is a lot more to say. For now – enjoy the photos! Credit for the photos goes to Robyn Sheldon and Carolyn Bonessa.

See you next year!

If you can’t wait until next year, or don’t plan to be in Chicago, you can join us for our remaining X Stides in 2019 in Florida, Iowa, Kansas, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire. Check out our Events page for details.
