Marfan syndrome is a potentially life-threatening genetic disorder, but people can live a normal lifespan if they are diagnosed and treated. Otherwise, they are at risk of a sudden early death due to a tear in their aorta, the large artery that takes blood away from the heart. Alarmingly, medical experts say that half of those with Marfan syndrome are not diagnosed and are at risk.

The Marfan Foundation works to create a brighter future for everyone living with Marfan syndrome and related disorders. This includes funding research, providing patient support, and conducting public and medical education to ensure that everyone affected is diagnosed and treated. The Walk for Victory helps fund our life-saving programs and services.

Join us for our 3rd Annual Boston Walk for Victory and help us raise awareness and advance our life-saving work. This nationwide walk program focuses on community and puts the FUN in fundraising! Grab a friend, join a team, or make your own team and get ready for some fun in the sun.
