About This Activity

The mission of It Takes Guts is to help others maneuver through the unchartered waters of rare autoimmune diseases.  We fight by raising awareness and fundraising for research aimed at a cure.  Our wish is for others to feel supported and honored in their journey, our hope is that they find strength deep within themselves to continue to find answers. We live by the words "whatever it takes."  Our run benefits the "It Takes Guts to Dream" fund and the research of Dr. Yinka Davies (PSC) and to Dr. Bob Naviaux (UCSD) for his work with Neuro Immune Disorders.
