Why We Walk for Alopecia

The National Alopecia Areata Foundation’s (NAAF) 2nd Annual Walk For Alopecia™ is the finale of Alopecia Areata Awareness Month and it will once again bring the alopecia areata community of families, caregivers, friends, co-workers, and healthcare professionals together to help drive research for better treatments and a cure, increase support, advocate for change, and end stigma.

In 2023, the inaugural Walk For Alopecia™ was a tremendous success engaging thousands across the country, increasing public awareness of alopecia areata and raising more than $600,000 to support alopecia areata services and research. The 2024 Walk will build on this achievement, engaging more people in more communities who want to do something about alopecia areata. With an event site in San Francisco, select volunteer sites around the country, and locally activating do-it-yourself Walk Where You Are teams, there is opportunity for everyone, everywhere to show the world that it is not just hair!
