Matching Gift – Support Linda Tannenbaum as she Walks for a Cure

Linda Tannenbaum, Founder & CEO of Open Medicine Foundation (OMF), is passionately dedicating her efforts to
pave the way for a cure for ME/CFS, Long COVID, and related diseases.

On September 10, she’ll be lacing up her shoes to walk in the 2023 Surfers Point Marathon in California, demonstrating her unwavering commitment to the cause.

Her participation has a dual purpose:

  1. To heighten awareness around these debilitating diseases.
  2. To raise vital funds that will support two pivotal research gatherings in 2023.


Your support of Linda’s Walk for a Cure will fund:


Open, collaborative research is vital in OMF’s approach to funding research and finding treatments, and a cure. Your support will fund the research and collaboration that has the power to restore millions back to health.

And guess what?

Linda and her husband will be matching all donations up to $10,000!  
That means your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar!


 Give $20 for $40 of impact!

Give $100 for $200 of funding going directly to in-person collaboration.

If giving to Linda’s Walk for a Cure is not possible for you at this time, would you consider sharing her race funding link with your network on social media?

Thank you for considering this matching gift opportunity today!

With hope for a brighter tomorrow,
