Mission MSA will be running three in-person half day community walks between September 22nd – October 5th. We’re looking to create a planning committee for each of the following locations on these dates to help our vision come to life and bring hope and awareness to Mission MSA’s work and those affected by MSA.


  • San Diego (September 22, 2024)

  • Dallas (September 29, 2024)

  • Chicago (October 5, 2024)


This fundraising walk will bring our MSA community together across the country for a half day of togetherness and connection and bring in contributions for a good cause.  


We want to be sure to involve our MSA community as much as possible, and we’re looking for people interested in helping us plan, organize, and execute our 5k walks. If this sounds like something you’d like to be part of, please look at our opportunities to participate below!


Please note the deadline to submit applications is May 20, 2024.
