10th Anniversary Walk & Roll for Spina Bifida

By Mark Shuller - Email

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) – The Spina Bifida Association of Cincinnati (SBAC) is hosting its 10th Anniversary Walk & Roll on Saturday, September 25, 2010, at Miami Whitewater Forest on the scenic Shaker Trace Trail. Participants may choose a two or four-mile accessible path. Registration is free. A collectible 10th Anniversary t-shirt is given to those who donate $35.00 or more, in a limited supply.

All funds will stay local to benefit the SBAC. Last year the event raised over $85,000 with 800 walkers and rollers. Members of the Northern Kentucky Black-n-Bluegrass Rollergirls will be leading the walk with participant, Jeremy Moses. A complimentary picnic will be served after the event with children's games and live music by the CODE.

Spina Bifida is the most frequently occurring, permanently disabling birth defect in the United States.  It results from the spine's failure to close properly during the first month of pregnancy. Individuals with Spina Bifida experience varying degrees of paralysis, hydrocephalus and associated learning and organization challenges, bowel and bladder control difficulties, sexual dysfunction and life-threatening latex allergy. It affects a person's mind, body and spirit.

The Spina Bifida Association of Cincinnati works to support individuals with Spina Bifida as they reach for their goals and pursue a fulfilling life. We are parents, adults with Spina Bifida, and dedicated professionals working together to support and encourage families and individuals throughout Greater Cincinnati. It is our goal to enrich the lives of those affected by Spina Bifida through education, parental support, social networking, advocacy, public awareness, and more.

For more information or to register for the Walk & Roll, call 513-923-1378 or visit our website at sbacincy.org.
