The ADHD Walk & Family Fun Day on Sunday, May 18, 2014 is an opportunity for the ADHD community across the country to stand tall and walk together in an effort to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of ADHD. With 15 million adults and children affected by ADHD in the United States, including one in eleven children diagnosed with ADHD, this event will draw attention to the rising number of people with ADHD. Join the movement! It doesn’t matter where you live, you can get involved in your local community by becoming a virtual walker.

If you live in the Washington, DC area, put on your walking shoes and get ready for a wonderful day. Bond with other families who face similar challenges. Hear inspirational stories that can uplift your family life. Enjoy this 5K Walk along the beautiful, wooded Washington and Old Dominion Trail. Registration fees are $10 for an individual and $25 for a family. Every walker receives a t-shirt!

Forming a team is a great way to motivate others to get involved and participate in the ADHD Walk and Family Fun Day. If you would like to form a team, download our team captain kit full of helpful information on organizing a team and fundraising.
