PrincetonOne RPO is Purple for SMA Awareness Month

August is SMA Awareness Month

In August 2016, PrincetonOne’s RPO team wore purple to raise awareness for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) as part of National SMA Awareness Month. SMA affects 1 out of every 10,000 babies in the US. We are proud to support organizations which help find cures for families.

You can learn more about SMA and how to get involved by visiting their website, CureSMA.org.

From CureSMA’s website:

While our community works year-round to raise awareness of and funds for SMA, August is a great time to spotlight those efforts. In addition to our usual work—hosting and attending events, telling our stories to neighbors and friends, sharing information about SMA, using social media to raise awareness, and more—many families and chapters plan special events or efforts around SMA Awareness Month.

Email fundraising@curesma.org, and tell us where you live and what you’re planning. Whether your idea relates to fundraising or to general awareness, this email address is a great way to get in touch with the national office staff member who works with your area of the country.

And if you’re not already connected with your local chapter, use our chapter page to locate their contact information. There may be families near you who are interested in joining forces for one or more of these ideas.
