About This Activity

TO REGISTER FOR MARCH FOR MARFAN, go to http://apo.case.edu/marchformarfan

March for Marfan is a 5k run, 3k walk fundraiser for the Marfan Foundation, an organization that supports individuals and families with Marfan Syndrome, as well as conducts research and raises awareness of the disorder. Marfan Syndrome is a genetic connective tissue disorder that can be life-threatening, and it affects up to 1 in 5000 people.

The March was started 11 years ago by Case Western Reserve University’s chapter of Alpha Phi Omega, a national co-ed service fraternity, by a member with the disorder. Over the years, several brothers in Case Western’s chapter or their families have had Marfan Snydrome or similar connective tissue disorder, and for this reason, the March for Marfan event holds a personal meaning for the chapter at CWRU.

Parking will be on the Case Western Reserve University campus in Lot 46, and it is free if you tell the ticket booth that you are a part of our event. Please visit our website for directions. If you chose not to register online, day-of registration begins at 9:00am. Every participant will have to sign a waiver upon arrival. We will also be giving out free t-shirts to those who registered before Feb. 28 and selling the rest on a first-come-first-serve basis at this time. The actual race begins at 10:00am, with the walk beginning at 10:15, and the course will run around our university's campus. After the race there will be food and drinks, and we will be raffling off gift cards and fun prizes from the local Cleveland area.
