BENEFITING: Spina Bifida Association of America
ORGANIZER: Spina Bifida Association of America
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I'm excited to be running this year's NYC Marathon to raise money for and awareness of the Spina Bifida Association, an organization that has been a great support to so many persons with Spina Bifida and their families, including my own.
Thanks so much for considering supporting my attempt to finish the marathon before nightfall, and much more importantly, for supporting the important work of the SBA!
Spina Bifida is the most frequently occurring, permanently disabling birth defect in the United States. Every day, eight babies are born with Spina Bifida or a similar birth defect of the brain and spine. SBA works not only to enhance the lives of the more than 177,000 individuals living with Spina Bifida today, but to prevent the birth defect in future generations.
Your gift will be put to work immediately to fund education, advocacy, research, and support that will benefit those with Spina Bifida. Through programs like the National Resource Center, National Conference, Education Days, and the Spina Bifida Collaborative Care Network, the SBA will continue to help individuals and families living with the birth defect to lead productive and fulfilling lives.
Thank you again,
