2024 Disneyland® Halloween Half Marathon Weekend

Charlotte's Story


We will be running to honor Charlotte Schmitt and all of the children and young adults with Ataxia Telangiectasia. Charlotte was diagnosed with A-T at just two years old. Every dollar raised will go to the A-T Children's Project. Please click on the "Donate Now" button and you can help us find a cure for A-T!

What is Ataxia Telangiectasia (A-T)?
Imagine a disease that combines the worst symptoms of muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, immune deficiencies and cancer. Children with A-T are usually confined to wheelchairs by age 10 and often do not survive their teens. Because A-T is a multi-system disease, scientists believe that A-T research will help more prevalent disease such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, AIDS and cancer. With your donation, we will be one step closer towards a cure for A-T!  Please click on the Donate Now button and you can help us race towards a cure for A-T! 

Who is the A-T Children's Project?
Your donation will go directly to the A-T Children's Project in their mission to find a cure for ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T). A-T is a genetic disease that causes loss of muscle control and balance, cancer, lung disease and immune system problems in children and young adults, shortening their lives. 
The nonprofit A-T Children's Project partners with academic and industry investigators worldwide - organizing and supporting innovative research, conferences, clinical teams, data platforms and biomarkers - to optimize disease management strategies, develop new treatments and find a cure.

Thank you for your support as we run for a cure!
