Billings Unites at Night

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

It's Billings' first ever Unite@Night walk, and it's happening this weekend.

The Chiari and Syringomyelia Foundation holds the one-mile walk at various places all over the country during June. The walk is held to raise awareness about Chiari Malformation, a disease which causes the brain to sag out of the base of the skull and compress the brain stem, as well as other related CSF disorders.

"I want to get the word out and let people know that if you're having these major symptoms you know and things, talk to your doctor and mention might this be Chiari," Ginger Stilson says. "And do an MRI so that it can be detected early on before it gets to be a major problem."

Stilson was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation in 2009 after being misdiagnosed for several years. She has had four major brain surgeries since.

The walk will take place this Sunday at Senior High's Daylis Stadium at 6 p.m. Various events will be held, from face painting and a bake sale, to raffles. The walk starts at 7 p.m. All money raised will go to the CSF.
