Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I will be completing the Peterborough half marathon in aid of Act for SMA.
Grace Elizabeth Sinclair, daughter of Neil and Allyson, was born on the 27th August 2016. In July 2017 Grace was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type 1. SMA causes progressive loss of movement and muscle weakness as a result of muscle wasting. Grace is hopefully about to commence treatment but sadly there is no cure at this time. Only 20% of children diagnosed reach their first birthday. The Ally Cadence Trust (ACT) for SMA supports families with children who have been diagnosed with SMA Type 1. They provide vital equipment, sensory toys and emotional support to families at this difficult time. Supporting this charity will allow them to continue to support other families in the future with equipment such as specially adapted car seats, prams and cot wedges. It will allow them to provide sensory equipment such as fibre optic lights, bubble light towers and other lightweight sensory toys and most importantly it will allow the founders to continue to visit families and offer support to them.
