The SBAWS is committed to serving those living with or those supporting loved ones with Spina Bifida in the state of Washington. We do this by offering the following assistance: Aid in purchasing medical items or repair of medical equipment not covered by insurance; connecting others with Spina Bifida for support and community building; providing educational grants; sharing access to informational resources available; offering assistance in purchasing new desktop or laptop computers; financial aid for registration to the yearly Education Days Conferences offered by the national SBAA; publishing and distributing a quarterly newsletter “The Evergreen"; and hosting various social events to include a Summer Picnic, Holiday Party, and Annual Educational Summit.
The SBAWS holds 2 major fundraisers each year, the Walk&Roll for Spina Bifida and the Adopt-A-Ghost Program, and several online fundraisers throughout the year. These efforts help generate revenue to provide services to the SB community and to offer prevention education around Washington State. Please join us in our efforts. As our motto reads: Together We Make the Difference!
