Team Charlie’s Angels Races in Vancouver Marathon, Raises $3,300

Charlie-Anne is a spunky red-headed 2.5 year old. And like all children, she is the apple of her parents eye. She is beautiful. She is smart. And her smile is infectious. Charlie has SMA.

This Sunday, May 6th, Charlie's mom, Cherie, is running in the BMO Vancouver Marathon in honor of her brave little girl. Cherie has been training for months, while working and caring for Charlie-Anne. And on top of that she recruited a team of "Charlie's Angels" to join her in the race and together they have raised $3,300 (and growing) to help change SMA!

I'm running and raising funds for theGSF because I'm the mother of the most amazing (almost) 3 year old with SMA type 1 who has taught me that one person really can make a difference. She does everyday. Charlie is the epitome of beautiful and brave. She struggles to breathe, WITH a smile on her face the entire time. She is a little earth angel who profoundly affects everyone she meets and teaches us what's really important in life. Charlie and all the little SMA angels like her are such special souls. SO easy to love, so incredibly difficult to let go of. NO parent/child should have to suffer the wrath of SMA. Every little girl should be able to sit up, walk, and dance. We love you Charlie, and we will FIGHT for you! 

 

Good luck to all 13 Charlie's Angels! We know Charlie's bright smile will carry you the extra mile! NEVER GIVE UP.
