Donate Now to Help Find a Cure for A-T!
WHAT IS 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 diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, AIDS, and cancer.
WHO AM I?
This is a challenge for me; participating in the half and the full marathon. I will be doing some walking for sure. I turn 60 this year and registered for the goofy challenge. At my age my brother was already diagnosed with Parkinson's and our father died of complications due to Parkinson's. Research into A-T may be helpful in finding the cure for Parkinson's. I want to use my mobility to help those children who are limited by this disease and help adults limited by mobility diseases as well. Please help me not only reach my fund raising goal, but help our team reach its goals. We even hope to exceed our fund raising goal. All donations are to fund research. No donated money is used to fund runner registration, travel lodging or food for the runner. It all goes to the children through A-T research. Thank you so much.
