Strolling For SMARD

So this has been going on for about 2 weeks now, but I haven't mentioned it here.  You have read about our newfound Jackson Laboratory friends, and we are now planning a fundraiser to help them expand their research into SMARD. 

Strolling for SMARD will be held September 24th at 10 am at the White Oak High School track.  We will walk a mile around the track, then enjoy a silent auction, raffle and games for the kids. 

Our goal is to reach $5000 that we can contribute toward Dr. Cox's SMARD research at the lab.  All funds raised will go directly to the lab, and donations are tax deductible.

We have already gotten a number of local sponsors, and will be highlighting them soon.  Please come join us for what we hope will be a nice fall morning.  Admission is 10.00 a person, with kids ten and under free.  T-shirts are available for 9.00, with 100% of admission and t-shirt prices going to the lab--straight to SMARD research. 

If you are out of the area but would still like to help, please consider a tax-deductible donation directly to the lab.  You can find our Strolling for SMARD page here.

Please help us find a cure.  Your generosity could help my little boy walk or snorkel or dance at prom one day.  Thank you!!!
