How can I help?
Become a team captain
Team captains recruit other walkers and inspire them to raise money for Cure SMA. Team captains are leaders who set team fundraising goals, help team members meet it—and have a lot of fun along the way. Cure SMA provides tools, tips and other resources to help you build a successful team.
