The WALK-N-ROLL® for Spina Bifida is a family-friendly walk event being held to raise awareness about Spina Bifida and celebrate the accomplishments of the over 166,000 Americans living with it.

The name “WALK-N-ROLL” 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.

Participants can choose between a one-half mile or one mile path and we invite you to walk around these paths however many times you would like to do so. Children can come in their Halloween costumes and visit the exhibitors to get some treats. There will be activities and music, too.

Come join the LASCI gang at this event!

About Spina Bifida

bertwithkidSpina Bifida is the most common permanently-disabling birth defect. It affects eight births per day in the United States; currently an estimated 180,000 people in the United States are living with Spina Bifida. The Spina Bifida population in Georgia is estimated to be up to 3,000 children and adults.

People with Spina Bifida often face additional medical concerns, including:
LATEX ALLERGY
UROLOGIC CARE AND MANAGEMENT:
According to the SBA, the urologic care of children with spina bifida has undergone several important changes in the last decade. The emphasis is now on early catheterization of the child’s lower urinary tract and preventative treatment to preserve both kidney and bladder function.
