What is the “Walk-n-Roll”?

The Walk-n-Roll for Spina Bifida is a family-friendly, one mile walk event being held to raise awareness about Spina Bifida. The name “Walk-n-Roll” was selected because it embodies a sense of inclusiveness and invokes the sense of empowerment which the Spina Bifida Community embraces in all that it does. A belief in a better tomorrow is our vision and the steps taken in this walk represent steps on a path to realizing that dream. Donors and walkers will support individuals with Spina Bifida by signing up for their favorite team.
