APBD Tour de Friends

APBD Manifests During the Prime of Life
APBD is a rare, inherited disorder of metabolism that devastates the nervous system. It gives no indication of its presence in infancy or childhood, but it strikes adults when they're in the prime of life -- as young as 35. Most often, sufferers are told they have MS, ALS, peripheral neuropathy, and other severe degenerative ailments which have similar symptoms. At the current time, there is no treatment or cure.
We're Raising Dollars To Bring About a Cure
In 1990, the first major discovery concerning the genetic origin of APBD was made. Through imaginative and determined research, the understanding of the disease has deepened immensely. We're closing in on answers that promise to fulfill everyone's dream for treatment and cure! Please throw your weight behind the effort.
The University of Pennsylvania Boosts the Power of Every Donation
The dollars we raise through the Million Dollar Bike Ride will be MATCHED by Penn Medicine's Orphan Disease Center (ODC), up to $50,000. ODC banks all funds on our behalf and administers research grants to top notch researchers around the world. This is a powerful opportunity to advance APBD research. Please be generous with your support.
