What is the Walk & Roll?
The Walk & Roll is a fun, family friendly event to support those affected by spina bifida.
This event provides the opportunity to raise awareness, meet and greet old and new friends, while raising funds for the Spina Bifida Coalition of Cincinnati. This event raises over 65% of the funds for the organization to support those living with spina bifida in the Greater Cincinnati area.
The Walk & Roll includes music, face painting, silent auction, raffles, and a picnic for everyone who attends.
What is Spina Bifida?
Spina Bifia (SB) is a complex, but manageable condition that occurs when the backbone that protects the spinal cord does not form and close as it should. It often results in damage to the spina cord and nerves. It is often associated with hydrocephalus.
About the Spina Bifida Coalition of Cincinnati
Formed in 1973 by parents, professionals, and adults with spina bifida the organization continues to promote and empower the lives of all affected by spina bifida in the Greater Cincinnati area.
SBCC advocates for improved public services and transportation, connecting people with others in the community via social events and social media. In addition we educate families, teachers, and professionals, about what it means to live with spina bifida and the resources available to improve quality of life. We also support our clients through financial assistance and small gifts when at the clinic or in the hospital to let them know we are thinking about them.
The organization relies solely on donations, grants, fundraising events and sponsorships to provide the necessary services for those born with spina bifida. All funds raised, stay in the Greater Cincinnati area and are tax-deductible (per IRS regulations).
