The founding of race for RP
Race for RP’s inception comes from Nancy Linn’s story. After years of painful and debilitating symptoms with no clear cause, Nancy was diagnosed with relapsing polychondritis. She found strength and the courage to persevere by choosing to live with purpose. Race for RP raises awareness about RP in clinical, scientific, and broader community arenas, and advances research efforts for this and other autoimmune diseases to catalyze discoveries that improve diagnosis, patient outcomes, and ultimately, lead to a cure. With countless other patients afflicted with autoimmune disease and facing similar struggles, Nancy’s purpose is our collective purpose.
