Community Gathers for the 11th Annual Northern California Walk-n-Roll to Find a Cure for SMA
The 11th Annual Northern California Walk-n-Roll, held August 24th, 2013, was an amazing turnout of families and friends supporting FSMA. This year’s walk took place in a new location in San Francisco’s beautiful Golden Gate Park. The morning started with a slight drizzle and fog but when it was time to walk the sun was shining. The 225 participants gathered at the scenic Pioneer Log Cabin picnic area and walked around Stow Lake. We raised $63,000 for Families of SMA research and patient services.
Once the walk concluded everyone enjoyed catching up with each other in a picnic style lunch, balloon artist, face painters, and an incredible raffle that consisted of various themed baskets, gift certificates, sports memorabilia and an iPad.
Thank you to everyone that participated, supported a walker, and donated to make the Northern California Walk-n-Roll such a success! We had many new families at the walk this year and look forward to seeing everyone again in 2014 – if not sooner!
