My Story…

My name is Drew and I’ve had the privilege of being a big part of Charlie’s life for the past 6 years. She has changed my life for the better in a 100 different ways, through her spirit, her resilience + her strength + bravery in the many things she goes through. I love this kid.
Charlie wasn’t supposed to see her 1st birthday, she turns 10!! on June 22nd, we are celebrating this miraculous milestone by rolling + running 21kms together in the Scotiabank half marathon to raise funds for Cure SMA. Charlie had to get special permission to take part because the minimum age is 16, so this is pretty special.

Thank you!


SMA is the number 1 genetic killer of children under the age of 2. SMA is like ALS in children. Children lose the ability to walk, eat, swallow, and breathe on their own. They often pass away from complications due to the common cold.

Charlie-Anne was given 3 months to live at 6 months of age and is turning TEN June 22nd, the day before the race! She is celebrating by rolling 21k ! to raise funds to cure SMA!

Join us and help us raise funds to celebrate this miraculous milestone and help others living with this devastating diagnosis! Prizes for top fundraisers!
