Emily's Pool Challenge

I was diagnosed with A-T when I was 3 years old. Since 1999, my family and many friends have raised money for the A-T Children’s Project by participating in numerous walks, golf tournaments, and marathons. All of this was done on my behalf. My Pool Challenge is my way of giving back to all our supporters as well as making a difference for A-T people everywhere.

This year I am also walking to honor my dear friend, Kate, who passed early this summer. We met over 12 years ago at an A-T marathon weekend and were fast friends from then on. I know Kate will be cheering for me on July 24. And I will certainly be thinking of her while I walk!

My goal is to raise enough money so the A-T Children’s Project can fund more research to find a cure or treatment for A-T.

Thank you for supporting my online auction that runs from July 19 - July 23 and my Pool Challenge on July 24.


About A-T Children's Project

Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) is a genetic disease that causes loss of muscle control and balance, cancer, lung disease and immune system problems in children and young adults, shortening their lives. The nonprofit A-T Children’s Project partners with academic and industry investigators worldwide – organizing and supporting innovative research, conferences, clinical teams, data platforms and biomarker development – to optimize disease management strategies, develop new treatments and find a cure.
