Couldn't host such a great event without our amazing volunteers.
If you are unable to attend the 5K Walk/Run, please consider making a donation to the Simmons Center in hopes that a treatment, or ultimately a cure for this disease can be found. The Simmons Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2001 thanks to the generosity of the Simmons family. The Dorothy P. and Richard P. Simmons Center for Interstitial Lung Disease provides: state-of-the-art care for people with interstitial lung disease (ILD) that is comprehensive and compassionate; international leadership in research on lung inflammation and fibrosis, promoting the translation of scientific discoveries into new treatments for patients with these lung disorders; a complete resource for the education of patients and their families regarding ILD and its impact on their lifestyle; and patient-friendly advice and support for people with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
