The SBAGNE Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida will take place on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at the Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital in Canton, MA (formerly Mass Hospital School).
Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida is a family friendly, non-competitive, one-mile walk event and educational resource fair that raises awareness of Spina Bifida and celebrates the accomplishments of the over 180,000 American living with its challenges. Proceeds are used to support local community programs and services for all affected by Spina Bifida.
The name "Walk-N-Roll" was selected because it 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.

***Incentive prizes are not cumulative
As a non-profit, we are very grateful for your support, but we are also dependent on the funds you raise. A large part of the donation money we receive comes through the FirstGiving website. It is a convenient way for individuals to donate.
FirstGiving charges a service fee to SBAGNE for each donation made. FirstGiving provides an option to individuals who are making an online donation to cover the fee (on the Donation page). In 2015 SBAGNE paid just over $5,000 in credit card processing fees. This $5,000 could have been used to boost our current programs or launch a new one.
As an organization, we ask you to please consider paying that extra fee when you are making a donation and remind your supporters as well. By paying slightly more, you can make a significant impact.
