THE 2018 RARE CAROUSEL OF POSSIBLE DREAMS

The RARE Carousel is a unique opportunity between the Relapsing Polychondritis Awareness and Support Foundation, Festival of the Children Foundation and Global Genes that provides an exciting and innovative way for RPASF and other participating organizations to raise funds, cultivate new donors, increase awareness to enable education, develop support and hopefully fund a first ever symposium around diagnosis and treatment options for our children stricken with RP.

The Relapsing Polychondritis Awareness and Support Foundation (RPASF) is proud and excited to be a participating organization in the 2018 RARE Carousel! Because of Awareness, Rare Diseases are being discovered in children ever more and more often. Funding is greatly needed to study these diseases as they are overlooked or misdiagnosed in favor of more common diseases.

There is an urgent need to address the growing population of Pediatric RP patients and their families. 100% of the funds raised by our team will go directly to RPASF, Inc and will be used to make resources available to educate providers and patients ‘families. Also, to bring together professionals and families to share current therapies, studies, legal consults and other opportunities, as well as discussion forum(s) and fun activities for the children. Ultimately if we reach our $50,000 goal, the funds will be used by RPASF will be used to host a symposium on Pediatric Relapsing Polychondritis. We need team members as virtual Riders and as such recruit your own sponsors in support of yourselves and our team RPASF, Inc.
