Four out of every 100,000 people will be affected by spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and now you can help fight this disease and “pin for a cure.”
Fight Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Pin for a Cure
A very special request has been started by StorageMart, of Columbia, Missouri, to garner “pins” (Pinterest.com) to help raise awareness and money to go toward fighting spinal muscular atrophy. This “Pin for a Cure” project will run from March 7 through March 31, 2013.
For every pin that is received on this link (http://www.storage-mart.com/blog/charity-fundraisers/pin-for-a-cure-on-the-brink-of-curing-spinal-muscular-atrophy/) or by pinning the article photo, StorageMart has pledged to give $1 to the Muscular Dystrophy Association up to $5,000.
SMA Also Affects Infants
SMA is also the leading cause of genetic death in infants, so if you Pin for a Cure you will be helping scientists and researchers make the advances necessary to find a cure once and for all.

StorageMart and Pin for a Cure
StorageMart will be presenting a check on April 1 in Columbia, Missouri to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. All the money collected will go to help researchers like Dr. Christian Lorson, Ph.D, at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO, who are making great strides in finding a cure for SMA.
