"Operation Shooting Star is dedicated to increasing awareness of Autoimmunity and its diseases while committed to sending 100% of fundraising efforts directly to research."

We believe that supporting research is the best chance we have at curing and ultimately eliminating over 80 autoimmune diseases. This organization was established to assure that all donations and monies raised would be sent directly to research to help accelerate the objective of curing Autoimmunity, which is the cause of autoimmune diseases. In order to stand by our word, we strive to fundraise at no direct expense to O.S.S. Our "100% in, 100% out" goal is achieved through sponsorships designated for specific operating expenses to absorb the cost of each event.

"Wish, Believe, Achieve…Cure One to Cure All"

According to the National Institutes of Health, there are over 80 autoimmune diseases. Several of these diseases share a common immune basis and therefore information obtained from research in one autoimmune condition can be beneficial to others.

Autoimmune diseases result from a dysfunction of the immune system. The immune system protects you from disease and infection. Sometimes, though, the immune system can produce autoantibodies that attack healthy cells, tissues, and organs. This can lead to autoimmune disease.
