2021 Northern California Walk-n-Roll

Annie's Team

Hello there friends and family!​​

This year the Walk N Roll to support Cure SMA is once again - VIRTUAL!

We’re hoping you will still support this wonderful organization by joining our team 'Annie's Team' virtually. Cure SMA is a non-profit focused on funding research to find more treatments and ultimately a cure for spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). SMA is a disease that robs people of of physical strength by affecting the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord, taking away the ability to walk, eat, or breathe. SMA is the disease Annie was diagnosed with in 2016.

OUR GOAL: 
Raise $20,000 for Cure SMA in 5 DAYS

Start: Today, Tuesday, September 14, 2021
End: next Saturday, September 18, 20201

YOUR DONATION WILL BE MATCHED! Your donation to Annie's Team will be MATCHED dollar for dollar by Annie's Grandpa (Gael Barsotti) until we reach our goal. Go Dad! If you register to virtually walk with us for $25 - we add another $25 to the fund. If you donate $500 to Annie's team - he'll add another $500 to the fund! And ALL the money goes directly to Cure SMA to help provide support, and fund research to find more treatments and a cure.
BOTTOM LINE: Our goal is to raise $10,000 so that Annie’s Grandpa will add another $10,000 to the team. WE can do this!

Cure SMA leads the way to a world without SMA - the number one genetic cause of death in infants. About 1 in 50 people in the United States is a genetic carrier.

Thanks to Cure SMA and Annie's doctors at UCSF Annie is benefitting from treatments. She still goes in every four months to get her dose of Spinraza. We are seeing Annie actually get stronger - instead of weaker. This would have been unimaginable without treatment. We are still looking for a cure.

Thank you for all your support these past few years. You do have to admit, it's sort of nice not having to deal with traffic, finding or paying for parking and it saves us all so much time. The downside - of course - we don't get to see all of you in person. While we would much rather all be together, we do hope you can support us by joining our team:

You are wonderful! Stay safe out there people!
Love,
Cathy, Matt & Annie
