Please join us as we do this special WOD on Saturday, August 18, 2012 at Balloon Fiesta Park in memoriam of Benjamin “Bugaboo” Abruzzo III to raise awareness and donations for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). “Bugaboo” lived for just 200 days before he lost his battle with SMA on December 29th, 2005. The event will begin at 9:00 am and run in heats. Each heat will have a 30 minute cut off time.
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), the number one genetic killer of children under the age of two, is an often fatal disease that destroys the nerves controlling voluntary muscle movement, which affects crawling, walking, head and neck control, and even swallowing. There is no current treatment for this often fatal disease.
