Langley, Canada, July 16, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The Bootcamp Effect, located in Langley, BC, will be hosting it’s seventh-to-date “charity bootcamp” fundraiser, this time to help raise awareness for those suffering from, and know individuals affected by, spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) disease. The event, Florence and Charlie's 10k to End SMA, is in honor of Florence Marigold Evanow who recently lost her battle with SMA at the age of 3, Charlie-Anne Ehlert now 6 years old, and all of the families affected by SMA. The charity bootcamp will be held on Saturday July 23rd, 2016 from 9-10AM at The Bootcamp Effect’s Langley location at 20530, Langley Bypass in Langley, BC.
SMA is an autosomal recessive disease similar to ALS, but it affects children. The disease progressively destroys lower motor neurons that enable control movement in the arms, legs, chest, face, throat and tongue. When these nerve cells cease to function as they should, control of essential voluntary muscle activity such as breathing, swallowing, speech and motor movement becomes increasingly difficult and eventually impossible to do.
All proceeds for this event will go to Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy Canada, a national charity which is dedicated to finding a cure as well as improved treatment options for those whom are suffering from SMA, as well as to assist families directly affected by the disease. Get much more out of your regular workout by joining them at The Bootcamp Effect for a full-fledged bootcamp workout while helping to support the cause at the same time.
