This fall, SMA families from around the country will be hosting 23 Walk-n-Rolls helping to raise critical funds to push the advancement of a treatment and a cure for spinal muscular atrophy.
Did you know that SMA is the #1 genetic killer of children under the age of two?
Did you know that one out of every 6,000 babies is born with SMA?
Did you know one in 40 or 7.5 million Americans are carriers?
How can you change these staggering statistics? Create a team and set a goal to raise $100 to help make a difference in the lives of our SMA families. Walk-n-Roll events are happening in over 20 states throughout the US, and you can be part of supporting Cure SMA who is leading the charge in SMA research while also supporting SMA families with essential medical equipment, providing newly diagnosed care packages and hosting the world’s largest Annual SMA Conference.
