Several families gathered in Macon's Central City Park to raise money to fund research for Rett Syndrome, at the annual Georgia Strollathon.
Rett Syndrome is a neurological developmental disorder.
Organizers of the event say they've raised more than $80,000 within the past 3 years.
The event offers several activities for families such as face painting, arts and crafts, and a silent auction.
Co-chair, Ashley Alexander, says fundraisers are critical because researchers are close to finding a cure.
"Rett Syndrome has been reversed in a mouse model. We're very close to having the treatments for all of our girls. We just have to keep the research efforts going so that we can eventually get to that point," said Alexander.
"This is where we all come together. All the families come together, and they have their teams. It just brings so much awareness to the city," said Gail Oquinn.
Organizers say their goal for this year's fundraiser is $30,000.
