National Walk Sponsor

Held across the country, the Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) Walk for Primary Immunodeficiency (PI) supports vital programs and services, powers research to help the next generation and increases awareness to advance early diagnosis and proper treatment of people living with primary immunodeficiency diseases. The walks bring together a passionate community and has raised more than $4 million since the first walk in 2013.

Serving as a National Walk Sponsor of IDF Walk for Primary Immunodeficiency 2018 would provide organizations with a presence at all National Walks, the Virtual Walk and any Community Walks. These are exceptional opportunities to interact with individuals and family members living with PI.

In 2017, 3,600 walkers from 400 teams in 12 National Walks and 4 Community Walks helped raise more than $380,000 for IDF Walk for PI and when sponsor-raised funds are included, more than $940,000 was raised. The 12 National Walks for 2017 included: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Kansas City, New York City, Philadelphia, St. Louis and Tampa.

Some committed members of our community organize smaller-scale Community Walks on their own under the IDF Walk for Primary Immunodeficiency banner. National Sponsors are automatically sponsors of all Community Walks. 2017 Community Walks included: Blountville, TN, Columbia, MD, Omaha, NE and Waco, TX. 

As a National Walk Sponsor, sponsoring organizations may collect information about walk attendees for further follow-up. Of course, attendees must be informed about how their information will be used, and they are not required to provide any information to any sponsor if they choose not to. Their confidentiality must be respected.

Community Walk Benefits

Community Walks help fill in the geographical gaps between the National Walks. While most of the National Walks are expected to have 400-750 attendees, the Community Walks are expected to have 50-150 attendees each. As these walks are smaller versions of the 12+ National Walks, the footprint that our National Walk Sponsors have at Community Walks must be smaller as well.

As a National Walk Sponsor, you are welcome to bring a table to the walk (no more than 6 feet long) and to distribute literature and giveaways as you would at a National Walk. However, the exhibit that you would use at the National Walks will be too much for this smaller walk, as the sites that our volunteers reserve do not usually allow tents or large displays without prior authorization.

In addition to the ability to bring a table and distribute materials, additional benefits include:

Local Walk Sponsor

As a Local Walk Sponsor, you choose the levels and cities that you wish to support individually, rather than altogether. Although there are some recognition opportunities only open to National Walk Sponsors, serving as a Local Walk Sponsor is a wonderful way to interact with the PI community.

As a Local Platinum or a Local Gold Sponsor, sponsoring organizations may collect information about walk attendees for further follow-up. Of course, attendees must be informed about how their information will be used, and they are not required to provide any information to any sponsor if they choose not to. Their confidentiality must be respected.

Local Silver and Local Bronze sponsors may not collect attendee information. There is 10% discount for any organization that wishes to be a Local Walk Sponsor of multiple walks. The discount can be used with any combination of sponsorship levels.

Medical Center Partner

As a Medical Center Partner, you have the power to help improve the lives of people with primary immunodeficiency (PI) by getting more people involved in this life-changing experience. You will not only raise your institution's visibility within the PI community, but you will also enable your patients to join a strong community that comes together every year to make a difference by fighting for a better tomorrow.

Becoming a Medical Center Partner is as simple as creating a team, inviting individuals connected to PI to your team, and raising funds. Your participation allows IDF to continue to provide the PI community with vital resources and programs, and lead the way in grassroots advocacy and patient-powered research.

In return, we would love for you to have a booth at the walk and join the fun alongside the patients that are thankful for your hard work. Together, we will create an environment where patients understand that they are not alone on their journey to a healthier life.
