Team Tyler and Katie
WALT DISNEY WORLD MARATHON, HERE WE COME!
We are joining the A-T CureTeam as we take over Walt Disney World in January 2019. Click on the Donate button now and you can 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 early twenties. 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.
WHY ARE WE RUNNING?
Trevor Smith's brother and sister were diagnosed with A-T at a young age, joining many children across the world fighting the same disease. Although a rare disease, we have gotten to know a few of the many families affected by this disease. We want to join others running for a cure too!
Running a half marathon has been on our 'bucket list' for many years. We have already started our training and we thought what better time to do this than now, since Tyler Smith has passed in March. We will be running in his and Katie’s honor!
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Any donation towards A-T would not only go towards finding a cure for A-T, but also keep us motivated while on our journey towards the finish line. Our goal is to raise $5,000 before December 14, 2018!
If you're interested in running along with us or just want to be a screaming fan when we cross the finish line, feel free to join our team (Team Tyler and Katie). The link above on ATCP website.
You can also drop us a line on Facebook to motivate us. Add fun photos, or give us any training tips/tricks you've found useful from your marathon experience! We will do our best to keep you updated on our training progress!
Thanks for all your support!
