You can get a head start on your healthy New Year’s resolutions and sign up today for our 2021 Team Cure SMA endurance race series!
Team Cure SMA is an endurance program that connects runners and cyclists with Cure SMA. Over the last two years, Team Cure SMA athletes from across the country have trained for endurance events while also raising money and awareness of Cure SMA.
In 2021, with many endurance events still to be postponed or cancelled due to the ongoing global pandemic, Cure SMA is opening up our endurance event program to a broader swath of the spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) community with event challenges of all shapes and sizes.
So, start your year off strong as a participant in a Cure SMA-driven virtual marathon, half marathon, 10K, or 5K race. Team Cure SMA race participants—veterans and newbies alike—can expect brand new endurance gear, comprehensive training programs, and fundraising guidance every step of the way.
- GEAR: New Team Cure SMA apparel will have a refreshed look for 2021, and include new, dry-fit racing shirts, fanny packs, fandanas, and more! These items will only be available to Team Cure SMA 2021 race participants.
- TRAINING: Whether walking, running, or rolling your way through a new endurance challenge, Cure SMA will provide the training schedule and support needed to help you reach your goal. You are not alone in this new endeavor.
- FUNDRAISING: Participants will receive tips and tricks to help maximize their fundraising efforts, including templated emails to share with connections, graphics to help promote your efforts on your social channels, and ideas to get your community involved.
- COMMUNITY: Participants of the 2021 Team Cure SMA endurance races will be part of a supportive online community that ensures everyone involved is able to reach both their fundraising and fitness goals every step of the way!
If you have any questions, reach out to Alyssa Zavislak, the program’s Endurance Development Manager.
Cure SMA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the treatment and cure of 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.
