Rare Disease Day Fundraiser

Rare Disease Day Fundraiser

Did you overlook Kawasaki Disease Awareness Day? No worries, you can raise awareness on Rare Disease Day – held on the last day of February every year to raise awareness of rare diseases. KD is a rare disease affecting approximately 5,000 individuals each year. By setting up a Rare Disease Day fundraiser, you can help raise awareness of KD among your friends, family, and colleagues. Share your KD story with them and, most importantly, tell them why knowing the symptoms of KD is crucial to a timely diagnosis. Set a fundraising goal in any amount and invite everyone you know to support your cause. To set up a Rare Disease Day fundraiser:
