FAMILIES AND FRIENDS RACING TO FIND A CURE.

2018 Run For a Cure
I was first introduced to this rare disease A-T through a fellow ultra runner named Tim Borland. He explained to me how it is affecting 1 out of 40,000 children and there is no known cure. I couldn't help my 3 children and if any of them had A-T. How difficult would it be for me to watch any of my children go through this. To have Ethan, Alexander or Maribeth appear normal and healthy thinking they were going to be like any other kids and then all of a sudden without any warning have difficulty walking or to seem have no control of their body actions. The whole time being helpless, wanting to take away all their pain, to fix it and make everything better, but can’t.

Knowing there is currently no cure for this illness created a drive in my heart to do something about it. I run for those who cannot. Help us find life-improving therapies and a cure for A-T (ataxia-telangiectasia).

On the right are pictures of Wyatt Watson and his family. He was diagnosed at 2 as he was a "wobbly" walker. He continues to be very wobbly and his speech is delayed all a result of having difficulty controlling his muscles, but other than that he is a typical kid. He loves riding his bike, playing ball with his dad, and racing his cars around. He truly has a bright and happy personality. He works so hard at things and never gives up.

See You On The Trails

WHAT IS A-T?

Imagine a disease that combines the worst symptoms of muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, immune deficiencies, and cancer. Children with A-T are usually confined to wheelchairs by age 10 and often do not survive their teens. Because A-T is a multi-system disease, scientists believe that A-T research will help more prevalent diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, AIDS, and cancer.
