HIGHLAND | The Conquer Chiari Walk Across America is Sept. 21 at Wicker Memorial Park.

The nationwide walk will raise awareness of Chiari malformation, a neurological disorder that affects an estimated 300,000 people across the country.

Registration begins at 10 a.m; the walk begins at noon.

The walk is a half mile to a 5K, depending on each participants' preference. A minimum of $25 is suggested. Register at www.conquerchiari.org or call (219) 650-4050. Free T-shirts will be given to those who register by Aug. 16 and donate at least $25.

All proceeds will go to fund research through Conquer Chiari. In 2012, the walk raised more than $535,000 with 80 percent of the money directly funding research.
