    Join Us for the Inaugural OCDCapital Walk
    Saturday, October 14th, 2017
    9:00am - 12:00pm
    U.S. Capitol Building front lawn, Washington D.C.
    On Saturday October 14th, 2017, as International OCD Awareness Week comes to a close, we invite you to join OCD community members from around the US - and across the globe - for the inaugural OCDCapital Walk in Washington D.C.
    About the Walk

    Co-hosted by the International OCD Foundation and OCD Mid-Atlantic, we invite you to join members of the OCD community as we walk in unity to:
    • Increase the public's awareness about OCD and its impact on those affected,
    • Provide information about available resources, and
    • Help individuals learn to advocate -- not only for the OCD community, but also for themselves, as they seek out treatment and supports in their communities.

    The inaugural OCDCapital Walk grand marshal is Shannon Shy, president of the IOCDF board of directors, OCD Mid-Atlantic board member, author, certified Peer Support Specialist, and OCD advocate. Shannon will offer opening remarks and cut the ribbon, kickstarting our journey along the walk route.

    Whether you or a loved one are affected by OCD or a related disorder, or you just want to show your support for the OCD community, we invite you to join us for this monumental walk. LEARN MORE
