In 2020, the event was held virtually but still involved thousands of participants and raised more than $200,000 for research and other patient centered programs. Since its inception in September 2008, the Conquer Chiari Walk Across America has been held in 234 cities in 47 states with nearly 85,000 participating walkers, and has raised over 5.5 million dollars.
Our continued success is due to the many dedicated Organizers & Volunteers who devote so much of their time and energy, our generous sponsors from across the nation and most importantly the participants who make the CCWAA such a special event each and every year.
The Conquer Chiari Walk Across America is a series of local awareness and fundraising walks held across the country on the 3rd and 4th weekend of September (Chiari Malformation Awareness Month) every year. Walk planning begins in January. Check out the top menu to find out the history of the Former Walk Sites, Wall of Fame, and our CCWAA All-Star Locations.
