FH Can’t Wait!

It is life threatening.

People with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) are in a race against time. Join the Race for FH to help raise funds that will find every person with FH, increase understanding of FH and ensure optimal care to save lives. 

The 2019 Race for FH kicks off on April 8 and crosses the finish line on May 4 — Race for FH Challenge Day.

Help us reach our goal of raising $200,000

Every gift matters

Early and accurate diagnosis and effective treatment can dramatically increase life expectancy for people with FH. Every dollar donated through the Race for FH helps improve diagnosis rates, increase understanding of FH and ensure optimal care to save lives.

 $25 connects a person with FH with a community of others affected by FH. 

$100 provides educational programs and materials to people with FH to help them understand their treatment options.

$250 trains a volunteer to raise awareness of FH in their community.

$500 supports advancing technology that can identify the 90% who don't know they have FH.

$1,000 helps fund the CASCADE FH® Registry -- the only ongoing research that shows how individuals with FH are diagnosed and treated in the U.S.
