Rally Support For Rare Diseases

The 7,000 Mile Challenge presented by Sanofi is 10 days in which our community works together as one team to travel 7,000 miles. Whether you are a casual walker, an avid runner, swimmer or cyclist, or roll on wheels of any kind, YOU can help make an impact being part of our team! Together we will let the 1 in 10 Americans who are impacted by the more than 7,000 known rare diseases we see and hear them.
