£1,180raised of £12,000 target by 17 supporters

Weʼre raising £12,000 to help Adam, my amazing nephew with Spinal Muscular Atrophy get the help he needs and deserves by fund raising for an expensive walking aid.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) is a chronic muscle waisting disease that is responsible for the highest infant mortality rates accross the developed world in under 2's. 1 in 6,000 - 1 in 10,000 children are born with the disease. 1 in 40 - 1 in 50 people are carriers of the SMA disease.

My beautiful and bright 15 month old nephew Adam Baughn is coming to terms with being diagnosed with Type 2 of this devastating disease. I've decided to try and help him in a very small way by raising money for a much needed walking aid to try and help him become as active as possible. I shall be running the Dublin marathon alongside a few amazing and dedicated friends, Mark Rogers, Ben Tracey and Euan Thomas.

The walking aid we are trying to raise the money for is called the 'Innowalk' and currently UK Government funding is not available to pay for this innovative and significantly beneficial device. You can view the product at

We would truely appreciate any donation towards this worthy cause and by doing so allowing Adam greater mobility and a better quality of life.

Many thanks

Laurence and team.
