Team Reed offers walking challengeReed Havlik lost his ability to walk when he was just two years old from Leukodystrophy, Vanishing White Matter disease.
During September, Leukodystrophy Awareness Month, Team Reed is launching “STEPtember” – an opportunity to celebrate the steps people can take every day who do not suffer from this debilitating disease. Team Reed is challenging people to pledge $1 for every day that they complete 10,000 steps – and to pledge $5 for every day they don’t reach their 10,000 step goal.
The idea for this came from the first-ever human clinical trials for Vanishing White Matter Disease, which started in June 2021. One of the major matrix’s being used to measure this trial is walking.
Team Reed suggests an alternative pledge of walking or running a mile a day if a step tracker isn’t readily available.
