A night walk to benefit those affected by Chiari malformation, syringomyelia and related disorders is set for this weekend in Lebanon.

The one-mile, casual evening walk is held in various locations around the country during June to bring together families, friends and people suffering from the effects of these disorders.

The Chiari and Syringomyelia Foundation, or CSF, Unite@Night Walk in Lebanon will be Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Wilson Bank & Trust track at 623 W. Main St. Registration will begin at 6 p.m.

CSF is a national nonprofit organization committed to increasing accurate and current public awareness regarding information, management and treatments for Chiari malformation, syringomyelia and related disorders.

The Unite@Night fundraisers around the country will support local CSF chapters and co-ops to work to fulfill CSF’s mission to provide education and increase awareness for these conditions while also funding important research projects that could help find answers to assist those fighting these disorders.

“Participation this year will also help to fund an international patient database to facilitate larger research studies and improve the likelihood of a future breakthrough that the over 1 million families affected by these disorders so desperately need,” said Traci Brown.

Donations and walker sponsorships are also available online.
