  Past Events

October 5, 2013

The 3rd Annual Kennady's Dream Walk N Roll for SMA raised over $13.400 for SMA! This is our largest fundraiser to date! Thank you to our friends, families, community, and big supporters! We raised money to fund a year's worth of wagons to get sent out to newly diagnosed families. This was an item that helped us keep Kennady mobile around the house and while traveling. The rest of the money went to Families of SMA, an organization that supports families, education, and research for spinal muscular atrophy. It was another very successful year. We cannot express enough gratitude to our supporters!
