  • Realizing the Dream Gene Therapy Program: Phase One

    fightsma_goal chart.png

    $250,000 Goal Reached and Exceeded!

    FightSMA and the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation are thrilled to announce that we have reached and exceeded the $250,000 goal set out for our Realizing the Dream Gene Therapy Program. The money was raised in just six months! To say we’re thrilled doesn’t describe the emotion.

    From the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation’s Victoria Strong:

    With the help of literally thousands of donors, hundreds of organizers, 60+ fundraisers, and through our partnership with FightSMA, together we have raised more than $250,000!!! In. Just. Six. Months. And because we have raised beyond what was expected, we are able to already begin funding the next critical phase of necessary research required to bring gene therapy out of the lab and to the thousands impacted by spinal muscular atrophy!!!

    From FightSMA’s Science Director, Dr. Chris Lorson, PhD:

    This would not have been possible without the extremely dedicated effort from the Strong family and all of the SMA families and friends that reached out to help over the past several months. The gene therapy project is led by Dr. Brian Kaspar (Nationwide Children’s Hospital). Recently, Dr. Kaspar and colleagues have shown dramatic survival benefits using scAAV9-SMN vectors. It is a long road from mice to humans and to bring this vector closer to a clinical trial, many steps must occur, with safety and toxicology studies being essential. This is where FightSMA and The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation have come together and provided support. This is clearly a community-wide effort and it will take more money and more time to bring a gene therapy trial to fruition and FightSMA and The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation are continuing to push hard to make this a reality.

    From Dr. Brian Kaspar, PhD, Principal Investigator at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, whose lab has received funding for safety and toxicity through this campaign:

    I am very thankful for the FightSMA and Gwendolyn Strong Foundation funding of $250,000 our lab has received to date — funding that has allowed the initial safety and toxicity studies to be conducted. We are in the middle of these key studies, and so far, all looks good.

    So, who is responsible for this great accomplishment? You are! FightSMA could not have been successful without help.

    1st Annual Rusty Rudder Golf Tournament Helps Raise $4,000 for Families of SMA

    Friends of Brielle and Brooke Kennedy and The Rusty Rudder Work to Raise Awareness about SMA

    Skybrook Golf Course in Huntersville, North Carolina, hosted The Rusty Rudder’s 1st Charity golf tournament for Families of SMA.  It was a beautiful day that hosted over 140 golfers.

    Brielle and Brooke Kennedy, who suffer from Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type II, stole the hearts of many in the Charlotte, NC region. Both Eric Paul and Brian Johnston, of The Rusty Rudder Management Staff, knew they had to do something to help.  They both met the girls earlier in the year at a casino night fundraiser for the girls, hosted at Hendrick Motorsports, and they wanted to do everything they could to help find a cure to this devastating disease.  Eric and Brian rallied the community and vowed to raise monies and awareness for SMA. A golf tournament seemed the perfect fit and away they went to the drawing board, and on September 13th, they held their first ever charity golf tournament.

    “We knew we had a lot to do in a short period of time, but we’d do anything we could to help these two sweet little angels”, said Eric Paul, Owner of The Rusty Rudder.  The ladies and gentlemen that participated teed off to a shotgun start, captain’s choice format and finished up around 4:00pm.  After golf a reception was held back at The Rusty Rudder with complimentary food, cocktails, friends and family.  “We couldn’t have asked for a better turnout the first time and we can’t wait to start planning again for next year”, said Brian Johnston, General Manager of The Rusty Rudder.  Kristin Balzer’s team won the tournament and bragging rights for next year.  “The Rusty Rudder is a great place to work and my father and his team were thrilled to participate and can’t wait to defend the winning title until next year”, said Kristin Balzer, bartender at The Rusty Rudder.  If you are ever in the Cornelius area of Lake Norman, NC, home to many superstars of NASCAR, please be sure to stop in at The Rusty Rudder and say hi to Eric and Brian!  Also, keep an eye on EBAY auctions under The Rusty Rudder for opportunities to bid on Used Raced NASCAR sheetmetal from Kasey Kahne, Richard Petty, AJ Allmendinger, Carl Edwards and many more.

    Altogether, The Rusty Rudder Golf Tournament raised $4,000 for Families of SMA!

    A girl's day at the track!

    Brielle and Brooke got the chance of a lifetime today to meet Danica Patrick!

    Danica is an American auto racing driver, currently competing in the IndyCar Series, the ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards, and the NASCAR Nationwide Series, as well as a model and advertising spokeswoman.

    She was extremely nice and now knows about Spinal Muscular Atrophy!

    The “Meet and Greet” with Danica Patrick was one of the top items auctioned off at the Friends of Brielle and Brooke fundraiser in June 2010!
