While our community works year-round to raise awareness and funds for SMA, August is our time to put a spotlight on those with SMA. As we begin to come out the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to engage the SMA community and the public around SMA Awareness Month by hosting virtual events, telling compelling stories, and using social media to raise awareness and share information about SMA.
You can take part in SMA Awareness Month activities all month long! In fact, we are asking the community to “rise to the challenge” every day with our 31-day SMA Awareness Month Challenge! Each Sunday starting August 1, we will share a week’s worth of ways for you and your loved ones to spread awareness of SMA and strengthen your bond with the SMA community. You don’t have to do them all, but rather choose the things that best fit your schedule and interests.
Below you will find additional ways to participate in SMA Awareness Month, as well as links to assets and resources that might get you inspired. The key is to raise awareness and share your SMA pride all month long!
