Thanks for visiting our Compete 4 CMV - Chicago Marathon campaign page.
We are excited to be raising support for the National CMV Foundation.
The mission of the National CMV Foundation is to bring awareness to congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV). The most common viral infection that infants are born with in the United States, occurring in 1 in 200 births.
Because CMV is a silent disease – meaning most people who are infected have no signs or symptoms – the mother is likely unaware she has an infection during pregnancy. Babies born with congenital CMV may have birth defects and/or experience a vast range of developmental disabilities. And 91% of women DON’T know about it.
Please support our team and the National CMV Foundation.
