Sarah Sharp-Fundraising To Cure SMA!
This will be my fifth year spending Mother’s Day running for a great cause. I’m thrilled to be participating in the Delaware Marathon as part of my beloved 4 person team. I'll be running 6.55 miles to benefit Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Team WTF is on a mission to raise $1000. We need your help!
Please consider a contribution to the cause. Any donation is very much appreciated! Ten bucks or a billion, every dollar donated matters!
My teammate John Cheslock is personally affected by this disease. His 6 year old daughter Eden has SMA type 2. She cannot walk, stand or crawl. She can sit up on her own and gets around by her power chair or is carried by family members. She is prone to respiratory issues, curvature of the spine and in general is pretty weak. This disease is cruel.
There is no cure for SMA. This devastating genetic disease strikes 1 in 6,000 babies born each year. It destroys the nerves that control voluntary movement. Children born with SMA may never crawl, walk or even lift their head.
Families of SMA is a leader in providing companies/researchers with money for research and clinical trials. They also support families like the Cheslocks with help in all ways imaginable....guidance, information, encouragement and most importantly HOPE.
My health and that of my children is a gift. It is my privilege to hit the hills of Wilmington again this year with my team. Each dollar we raise brings us closer to a time when Spinal Muscular Atrophy is treatable and curable.
Thank You For Your Support!
