FSMA Walk and Roll


The Chesapeake chapter of Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy held its 2nd annual Walk and Roll on Saturday, April 26th at Old National Pike Park in Mt. Airy, MD. The walk was attended by over 200 people.  On The Go Markets catered the event  and music was provided by DJ Alfie Aldave. Over $20,000 was raised. For families who have children that have been diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy, it was a wonderful day to get together, meet new friends and talk to other families whose children also are affected by SMA . Our Little Jewels thank all those who attended and made the Walk and Roll a very successful event.
