If you’re looking for ways to raise eczema awareness and funds for eczema research and support at the same time, look no further than Itching for a Cure (IFAC).
NEA’s annual fundraising campaign consists of fundraising events that take place during Eczema Awareness Month (EAM) in October.
Participants have the option of hosting in-person events such as walkathons, bake sales and craft fairs; teaming up to run an online fundraising campaign like our friends the #ItchyBees did this year; or supporting an existing fundraiser by making a donation.
This year, our top fundraisers were two courageous eczema warriors, Ella Kate and Kristen Mohan, who each raised over $2,500 apiece in their online fundraising campaigns.
We also want to give a special shout-out to long-time NEA supporter Tracy Zultko and her coworker, Alex Mueck, who ran a successful campaign during EAM in honor of Tracy’s son, Christopher, called “Christopher’s Itch Warriors.” Mueck led a hike, and they both raised money from friends, family and colleagues at Wells Fargo.
Lastly, we want to extend our warmest gratitude to the individuals who donated to NEA this year. Thanks to your support, NEA will continue to build awareness, advance research and improve patient care year after year until a cure is found. Every dollar makes a difference and has a direct impact on the millions of people affected by eczema, so please continue to make a donation.
