WElcome to Team Avi.
We are the akian family and we are excited to be fundraising for our 9th year through the ATCP. In 2009 when Avi was diagnosed with Ataxia Telangiectasia we were devastated but with time and the support of our family and friends we have learned to accept the challenges that AT has thrown at us and have choosen to "live life at it's fullest." this year has been an great year for our family-- we had the opportunity to vacation in europe for three weeks-- it was an amazing experience . We fully lived our motto each and every one of those days, "have wheelchair, will travel." On the fundraising front--WE are excited to be hosting our 9th annual Ride 4 Avi on September 23, 2018 (more info at www.ride4vi.com) to benefit the AT Children's Project and will once again be participating in the WDW marathon weekend. We Would like to thank you for your support! Without you the ATCP cannot continue it's dedicated work towards finding a life saving treatment or cure for all of those who are affected. Wishing you all the best!!! -Ara and Kristen
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.
