My vestibular journey is certainly not a dash!
Hi, my name is Jennifer Baumgartner and I’m joining the Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) to help raise awareness about the challenges of living with a vestibular disorder.
Vestibular disorders affect millions of people each year, often in debilitating ways. Dizziness, vertigo, and ringing in the ears are just some of the symptoms of a vestibular disorder, and while some people recover, others suffer to some degree their entire lives.
I have struggled with a vestibular disorder for several years now. This year I am committing to the Dizzy Dash 5K. I won't be running it, due to my limitations. However, I will walk the distance over the course of Balance Awareness Week. It is my way of trying to raise awareness.
As you can see, my personal goal is to raise $200. Your support will help. Your donation will help me raise awareness about vestibular disorders. Not only will you help me achieve my goal, you’ll also help the Vestibular Disorders Association make important advances for patients.
Just click on the "DONATE NOW" button below to contribute today. You will need to click on "CONTINUE" in order to complete the transaction. With your help we can improve the quality of life for people suffering from inner ear balance disorders.
Thank you for your support. Together we will make a difference!
