Curt's 2016 Ryder Davis Posse Ride Fundraising Page - We Can Make A Difference!
This is the second year year for the event and I'm excited to be particicpating again. The video above is a short compilation of last year's posse ride.
On November 12th, I'll be riding 1000+ miles in 24 hours once again to help raise awareness and money to fight spinal muscualr atrophy (SMA). SMA is the #1 genetic cause of death for children under 2 and sadly most people have never heard of it. I know I hadn't...not until a friend's grandson, Ryder Davis, was diagnosed in 2014. SMA is a terrible disorder causing the muscle nerves to deteriorate and die until all motor skills are lost. At this point in time there is no treatment and no cure.
But there is reason for hope. We know what causes SMA and what we need to do to develop effective treatments. We’re getting closer and closer to an FDA-approved therapy, with 17 ongoing drug programs...six of those now in clinical trials.
I’ve chosen to work with Cure SMA because they're uniquely positioned to direct funds to where they can make the greatest difference as quickly as possible. They’ve already invested over $57 million in research as well as providing vital support for families living with SMA.
Please join me in honoring Ryder Davis and supporting Cure SMA by making a contribution to the 2016 Cure SMA Ryder Davis Posse Ride. Making a donation to Cure SMA is easy, secure, completely confidential...and tax deductible. Just click on the "Donate Now" link on the right side of this page and follow the steps! Your gift will help fund vital research and family support programs for Ryder and other children with SMA.
Ride with me in spirit by making a donation today. Thanks in advance for your support! ~Curt
