The family of Paislee McKinley was overwhelmed by the community support shown in the participation of the KCNB1 fundraiser walk held at Hollydot Golf Course on Saturday, November 16, 2019. Approximately sixty people, a few dogs, and a couple of donkeys showed up to walk, offer support, and raise awareness of the rare genetic disease.

With only ninety known cases worldwide, most people, including many doctors donít even know about KCNB1. The Virtual 5k walk/run was held to increase awareness, and help raise funds for research. The funds will also go to organize and fund a conference to be held in July in Chicago to help families of KCNB1 patients connect. The walk was referred to as a virtual walk as participants all over the world participated in their area on the same day. November is KCNB1 awareness month.
