What it is

Move for GM1 is a simple fundraiser that takes place in August and September. Those who participate log miles walking, running, biking–or anything else–using the Charity Miles App, then share their progress on social channels so others can donate. It’s an easy, fun way to make a difference advocating for those who have GM1 and raising money for Cure GM1. 

How it Works

It could not be simpler to participate! All you need to do is download the Charity Miles app, click the get sponsored button, and add a photo. Then, throughout August and September, whenever you are active during the day, log your miles in the app, then share your progress on your socials. Some of the people who see your updates will donate!  Be sure to use the feature to ask for donations.  

What’s in it For You

Aside from endorphins, exercise, and making a difference, we’re offering an anonymous $10k match toward donations for this fundraiser, so whatever you raise via your miles will be doubled  up to $10k. Plus, the highest mileage earner in a day will get a free Cure GM1 t-shirt of their choice, and the top mileage earner overall will win two free tickets to any Disney park! 

How to Learn More

To learn more about how to log your miles you can visit the Charity Miles website. You can also email info@curegm1.org for more information. 


Wearing a Move for GM1 T-shirt  while you get your miles in is a great way to show those around you what you’re moving for! And, using our free, printable sign of hope graphic to take a selfie is a great way to share online!


There is more research and more projects than Cure GM1 can currently fund.  The cost of research and drug development is extremely high, but Cure GM1 can help seed projects and engage with others who will be able to fully fund clinical trials.  Furthermore, patient groups and nonprofits like Cure GM1 contribute to newborn screening and many initiatives that can help improve the lives of people who are impacted by GM1.
