In 2014, a vibrant three year-old with curly red hair, who was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, and loved flamingos and the color pink, inspired the 1st Flamingo Fun Run. Five years later, she’s still inspiring us and we’re still running “so someday they can.”

This year we are pleased to announce that the Grangeville Eagles Aerie 539 has joined the Flamingo Fun Run! In the past, all proceeds from the Flamingo Fun Run were raised for Cure SMA – a national non-profit that supports families affected by Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). This year, in partnering with the Eagles, some of the money generated by the Flamingo Fun Run will benefit local needs while still raising money for CureSMA.

The Flamingo Fun Run has been a great success, and we are looking forward to another great year of supporting Cure SMA, raising awareness of Spinal Muscular Atrophy, and supporting local needs through the Eagles’ charitable funds. The run will start at the corner of State and North Street at 9:30 a.m. – behind Umpqua Bank. There will be prizes for top finishers and for the BEST “flamingo” costume. Following the run you can enjoy live entertainment, food vendors, dancing, carnival rides and more Oktoberfest fun.

Wear something pink and come join us as we run, so someday they can!

What is Cure SMA? 

Cure SMA is dedicated to the treatment and cure of Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA)—a disease that takes away a person’s ability to walk, eat, or breathe. 8 million Americans carry the gene that causes SMA , and it is the number one genetic cause of death for infants. Since 1984, Cure SMA has directed and invested in comprehensive research that has shaped the scientific community’s understanding of SMA.  Until there is a cure, Sure SMA will do everything possible to support children and families affected by the disease.
