Run Like a Zebra for EDS was started by the owners and operators of Inclusion Fitness. Some of their close family members suffer from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and need financial help for doctor bills, wheelchairs, mobility aids and other medical needs. The run was set up to help alleviate some of the financial strain that EDS causes.For more information on how you can help April D., Shyla B., and the EDS Wisconsin, click here.
