Team Cure SMA is an endurance program designed to connect runners and cyclists with Cure SMA. Cure SMA, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the treatment and cure of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). SMA is a disease that robs people of strength by affecting the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord, taking away the ability to walk, eat, or breathe. It is the number one genetic cause of death for infants.
Team Cure SMA athletes from across the country can choose to run or bike in an endurance event all while raising money and awareness for their favorite organization – Cure SMA.
This year, Team Cure SMA is planning to be bigger than ever. Team Cure SMA will have more participants, new events, and greater fundraising accomplishments. Team Cure SMA will host 32 events across the country – 12 of these events are brand new! The expanded endurance program will also visit to new cities including: Phoenix, Little Rock, Baltimore, Orlando, San Francisco, Seattle, Cincinnati, Nashville, Boulder and Grand Rapids.
Team Cure SMA is also excited to return to several of our favorite events in cities like New York City, Chicago, Portland, Atlanta, Washington DC, Rehoboth Beach, Plainsboro, Pittsburgh, Lake Minnetonka, Kenosha, San Diego, Falmouth, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Indianapolis and San Antonio.
