Hosted by NKH Crusaders
Walk in place as we shelter in place.
Turn steps into dollars for charity
Like many other organizations, we rely heavily on public events to raise money for NKH research. In light of our current global state, we decided to host a virtual "walk-a-thon" to raise funds for NKH research and awareness. Each Zoom the Room Team will host a Zoom meeting on their respective date. We will walk, ride, laugh, and enjoy the company of each other, from afar. We urge you to get involved in the first ever Zoom the Room and help us as we continue our fight to save the lives of hundreds of children around the world.

Frequently Asked Questions
A virtual walk via Zoom, to raise money for NKH research and build awareness about the rare genetic condition.
Nonketotic hyperglycinemia is a rare genetic condition affecting approximately 500 children and adults worldwide. It's considered an orphaned disease, which means all research funding is provided primarily by the families of those affected.
Zoom the Room proceeds will go directly to research for NKH, including gene therapy.
