The idea to walk a consecutive 57 miles was inspired by some fellow rare disease-rs. A handful of men were bicycling across the US in 9 days to raise funds and awareness. They beat their goal and made their story into a movie which spurred this fundraiser.

As most of you know, Jack has Cystinosis, a rare metabolic, genetic disease afflicting more than 2,000 people worldwide. We run the Cystinosis Research Network (CRN) from our home. This disease has the potential to impact all of the organ systems in the body leading to kidney failure, muscle wasting, diabetes, blindness, pulmonary deficiency, hypothyroidism, and neurological damage.

Get ready for a night of winter fun!

You are invited! Join the Moore Family for a holiday celebration you won’t soon forget.

Five years ago, Chandler’s Chance started with a road side hot chocolate stand and a little boy’s dream: to help those with Cystinosis. Chandler was diagnosed with Cystinosis, a rare genetic disease at 10 months old. Only 2,000 people in the world have Cystinosis and funding to find a cure is limited.
