Breaking 4 for a-t!
honoring Alex olive and all children and young adults with a-t
Alex is 10 years old and has Ataxia-Telangiectasia (A-T). A-T is a rare genetic disease that effects coordination, causes immune deficiencies, and high rates of cancer. In 2020 Alex transitioned into a wheelchair full time but that hasn’t slowed him down! Everyday at school, Alex uses a walker with the help of his TA and walks 4,200 steps (that’s equal to 3km!)
For him, that’s like running a marathon!
Alex’s triumphs each and every day has inspired his mom, Crystal Olive to turn that 4,200 steps into her own 42km race. On April 29, Crystal will be racing from Fort Macleod to Alex’s school in Claresholm to raise awareness and funds for the A-T Children’s Project. Crystal will be attempting to break 4 hours (which would put her in the top 24% of all female athletes in Canada).
If you would like to support Alex and run your own race too, please consider signing up and running your race (3km) virtually! The event is free but donations are encouraged. Let’s raise $4,200 in honor of Alex and all kids with A-T!
