Want to know what it’s like to swim, bike, and run 321.6 miles over three days? 📽 Watch our debrief with Mary Latza after she dedicated her Herculean performance in Ultraman Florida to her great-niece Isla, diagnosed with SPS at just 18 months old, possibly the youngest SPS patient in the world.
Mary’s #Ultra4Isla raised awareness and funds for research to benefit all SPS patients. Congratulate Mary by donating to her epic effort!
Whether you’re an athlete in body or mind, we are launching #Move4Rare on Rare Disease Day (RDD), Monday, February 28, to raise awareness and funds for SPS research.
- Set a goal for miles or minutes in March.
- Post on social media & tag #Move4Rare #SPS #StiffPersonSyndrome
- Ask your friends and family to donate to The SPSRF in support of your activity.
With SPS, many of us have difficulty moving. We use walkers, wheelchairs, and some of us are bedridden. As Mary says, “I move because I can when others can’t.” With you by my side, we can move mountains.
There are 7,000 rare diseases that impact 300 million people worldwide. Many thanks to Rare Patient Voice for sharing my tips on patient self-advocacy. Also, on Monday evening, February 28th, in honor of Rare Disease Day, ABC7 News in Washington will report on the progress of The SPSRF since its inception. Look for it on all of our social media channels.
