ABOUT THE EVENT
*****************
SMALL Wheelathon is a charity ride to create awareness on SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) and its effect on children. SMA is the No.1 genetic killer among young kids.

// Do you know? //
- 1 in 50 Malaysians carry the defective SMA gene
- An estimated 500,000 babies in Malaysia are born with SMA every year (worldwide stats: 1 in 10,000)
- It affects any race or gender
- There are four types of SMA, with Type I being the most severe where age of onset is <6 months
- Within the first few months of birth, baby may have severe muscle weakness, poor swallowing reflexes and breathing. 95% of these babies will not make it past the second birthday. :(

THERE IS HOPE: Protected content

This event will also help to raise funds for impacted families and give patients a chance to be normal by participating in an all-wheel-marathon. Let’s RIDE for SMA!

The route is 5km, but it's entirely up to you how long you want to go. E.g. cyclists can go for more rounds, while participants on wheelchair can do less. All participants are winners!
