Walk for Amoeba Awareness

The Third Annual Jordan Smelski Foundation Walk for Amoeba Awareness is held in memory of Jordan Smelski.

Jordan passed away on July 2, 2014 to primary amoebic Meningoencephalitis (PAM). He was 11 years old. Jordan contracted the amoeba Naegleria fowleri from swimming in hot springs. PAM is 99% fatal, yet 100% preventable.

All proceeds will go toward research, training videos and awareness.
