About This Activity

We walk because of a promise David Cunniff made to his son when he was diagnosed with SMA type II. Dave told Caleb that he would not stop working until there was a cure for SMA. As a result, Dave was instrumental in starting this local chapter of Cure SMA, and planning our first 5K/Walk-n-Roll. In December of 2013, Dave, a New York State Trooper, was killed while on a routine traffic stop. He kept his promise he never stopped, but there is still work to do! That’s why we continue in his memory and honor, to walk, run and roll to raise funds for a cure. We work towards the day when no other parent has to hear, “No treatment, no cure.”
