2016 Carolina's Walk-n-Roll is Here

Sometimes, in the speed at which we live our lives, we forget to put information out there. This is one of those times.

Next Saturday, September 24, at 1:00PM is the 4th annual Carolina's Walk-n-Roll in support of Cure SMA. The Mastin family has been an active participant in planning, organizing, and fundraising for this event since it's inception. It will take place at Anderson Point Park near Knightdale.

So far, the campaign is a little over halfway towards its fundraising goal of $15,000. Let's see if Ollie's Team can help close that gap!

Thank you to friends, family and strangers that have supported us and the fight against this crippling disease for the last 9 years. More has been accomplished in the last decade of research than the previous 50 years combined. Several promising treatments are in trial as I type this. Treatments that could help slow or, in some cases, partially reverse SMA damage.

SMA has been described as "ALS in babies" and while the disease mechanism is different, the results are the same and just as terrible.

You can help out by donating to Ollie's team or by joining the team and creating your own team to further recruit. We can always use more walkers to fill the event out, but your donations are what helps drive the further development of a cure and support for SMA kids, adults and their families.
