Georgia First Annual Vitiligo 5K Fun Walk/Run

We wanted to say thank you as we kick-off our (#GAGivesDay on #GivingTuesday) first annual 5K Vitiligo Toucan Fun Walk/Run.

We are so grateful this year for our super advocates like Perry (Vitiligo Man of Action) Nicklya (KKutieStar), Tionta, Monyuette (VitChick), Justin(Grindpreneur) Oscar(Differ), Que, Vitiligo Queen, Nicole, Jamillia, Fanie, Maime, Jackie, Parentha, Jhori, Christina, Karl (CoachDunbar), Tammi (VitiligoBirthdayCheer), Charles, Tiffanie (#IAmGreat), Diane, Rochelle, Mira, Tiffanie J, Dee, Naveah, Brandie, Kurtis, Emily, Bianca, and so many others who hangout with us online, behind the scene, or at local events.

We are thankful for our board members, medical advisors, partners and sponsors who help make our movement possible.  God knows we cannot do this without you.

We are especially thankful for the milestone that was made this year (March 2017) by our Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson.  Congressman Johnson introduced Bill 213 for National Vitiligo Awareness Day that addresses the bullying, low-self esteem and suicides as a result of vitiligo. Bill 213 was endorsed by National Vitiligo Bond Inc Foundation and American Vitiligo Research Foundation. In addition, we support Stella Pavlides, president of www.avrf.org for continuing to raise funds towards research for vitiligo. We continue to thank God and give God all the glory for everything.

Thank you again for supporting us!

Mrs. Natasha Pierre McCarthy, CEO & Founder

About

Natasha Pierre McCarthy is the proud founder of Vitiligo Bond Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support and encouragement to individuals with vitiligo. From a vision through teaching as a Christian business professor, Vitiligo Bond was created. We educate through creative forms to patients and the public. Through vitiligo 101 sessions at Emory University with Dr. Holla, special community events, social media, partner support groups, public figures and state leaders we are able to bond and have available support for anyone suffering with vitiligo. Vitiligo Bond has created a path for vitiligo awareness and positive expression. We now have the following states through Governor Proclamations that recognize vitiligo awareness: {Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, & West Virginia}. In addition, Vitiligo Bond has been recognized by Congressman Hank Johnson. Congressman Johnson was also instrumental in our advocacy efforts to help get special recognition during the month of June from our President Obama to recognize and stand together with people who suffer with vitiligo. I believe that God created us for a purpose and everyone deserves the right to have fullness and a quality life. We all have the ability to shine. Vitiligo Bond Inc. is constantly working to raise awareness of the mysterious illness and use their platform in order to fund research that will hopefully lead to the discovery of the cause and a cure for vitiligo.
