Promoting Awareness of Spina Bifida
October is Spina Bifida Awareness Month and to help increase awareness about Spina Bifida, we’re joining Laurita Tellado of HoldinOutforaHero.org and Angélica Pérez of NewLatina.net in a Blog Carnival Fundraiser to raise funds for Laurita’s Walk-n-Roll event on October 29th. Through Laurita’s Walk-n-Roll fundraiser and this blog carnival, she hopes to educate more families about Spina Bifida and gain support for her Spina Bifida Association (SBA) chapter in central Florida.
Laurita isn’t new to the topic of Spina Bifida, she’s a lifetime advocate who was herself born with Spina Bifida and she has made it her life’s goal to raise awareness and secure medical care and support for families who are coping with Spina Bifida.
We Need Your Support
Here’s where you come in. We’re reaching out to our community to help Laurita with her cause and to support these amazing families who give back every day. Now it’s our turn to give back.
