ROCK4RV

since 2008

They say that music heals through its language of the soul, and nothing could be truer for this cause. Composed of a group of inspirational musicians and skillful performers, the artists behind ROCK4RV have donated their time and talents to raise funding to find a cure for CJD, a rare and fatal brain disease that took the life of Robert (Bob) Vitanza in 2008. Bob was a great man who positively affected the lives of many. Since 2009, this annual concert has raised enough funding for CJD research to become the record holder for the largest individual fundraising drive in the 25 year history of the CJD Foundation.

About CJD and the Cause

2019 Fundraising Drive

Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) is a rare, rapidly progressive neurodegenerative disease, one of several Prion Diseases caused by prion proteins that misfiled in the brain.  There is no treatment or cure and the disease is invariably fatal.
The Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Foundation (CJDF) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization founded in 1984 with the mission to support families affected by Prion Disease, raise awareness, and support medical education and research.  

We are coordinating the 11th annual fundraising drive in memory of Robert (Bob) Vitanza, who was taken by Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) in 2008. All funds raised will be donated directly to the CJD Foundation Inc (CJDF) (www.cjdfoundation.org), a 501(c)(3) organization that is committed to supporting individuals and families affected by this rare and fatal brain disease. Please join us on the path to find a cure by making a tax deductible donation.

Similar to prior years, and thanks to the generous support of the bands listed below, the 2019 campaign will culminate in the 11th Annual “ROCK4RV” CJD Benefit Concert in Bob's memory on Saturday, September 21, 2019. All funds raised at the event will also be donated directly to the CJDF. Please join us for this rock-and-roll celebration of Bob’s life!

Please also feel free to spread the word and thank you for your continued support and generosity!
