Register/Donate (not open)
THE CAUSE: PPPD, Persistent Postural-Perceptive Dizziness, is a newly diagnosed disease that will be added to the next revision of the international medical diagnostic codes (ICD-11). It’s patients become totally disabled and suffer from several symptoms. The multi-sensory dimension of impaired sensory processing in patients with PPPD extends beyond vestibular/visual motion stimuli and reflexive postural/oculomotor control mechanisms to other sensory inputs such as pain perception in terms of a more generalized disturbed habituation pattern. Currently, PPPD is widely unknown by many doctors and people alike. Furthermore, the cause and cure for this illness is still unknown. This race provides awareness, and funding for further research on PPPD.
