Pinwheels of Promise

Pinwheels of Promise 

“A pinwheel also needs wind. And with our actions and our intentions, we can be that wind. We have to be those agents of change in our communities.”  -- Josh Charles

While Walk-n-Roll communities come together to make a difference for Cure SMA, we also know that each participant has their own personal reason for attending. Whether you are attending because you live with SMA, you are remembering someone lost to SMA, or are there in support of someone with SMA, all experiences are honored at our Walk-n-Roll events in our Pinwheel of Promise Program.  

Each team will also receive a pinwheel sign, which they can decorate at the event with photos and messages of hope to be displayed along the Walk-n-Roll route.

Through your participation, our goal is to build a garden of pinwheels at every Walk-n-Roll event to help us remember, honor, reflect, support, and connect across our diverse experiences and journeys with SMA. They are a promise to the past, present, and future of our SMA community. 

At Walk-n-Roll, all participants who attend will receive a 2023 commemorative Walk-n-Roll pinwheel lapel pin in one of three varieties:  ​

Orange Pin – I have SMA

Blue Pin – I have lost someone to SMA

Purple Pin – I support someone with SMA or I support Cure SMA
