By participating or donating to Team Cure SMA for the 2015 United Airlines NYC Half you have the opportunity to transform lives in a direct and meaningful way. Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is the #1 genetic cause of death for infants under the age of two.
Thanks to your support, Cure SMA will fund roughly $1.8 million in new basic research, drug development and care study programs. Cure SMA creates hope for SMA families around the country by funding research projects that have now led to 7 drug therapies in clinical trials today. In addition to research, Cure SMA also provides family support programs including the Annual SMA Conference.
Every dollar counts and together we will Cure SMA!
