BENEFITING: DO AWAY WITH SMA
Do Away with SMA (or “DAWS”), has been working as a team to raise awareness about SMA. Joe Kolinsky, President and Co-Founder of DAWS, was recently quoted as saying that he lost his two brothers at a very early age as SMA Type 1 claimed both of their lives. He said, “Running and touching people’s lives means a lot to me. I want to reach out each and every person along the course so they know what kind of disease it is and how it can become terminal in due course. My primary aim is to raise awareness, though I also plan to give them the contacts of local specialists and health care centres. We simply want to help as many people as we can, and play a part in defeating this disease. When I run, I always remember the faces of my younger brothers.” The entire board of Do Away with SMA (501c3) Charitable Foundation is working hard so kids like Claire (Shown in the photo) can live a long and healthy life. Because all children deserve a chance.
