Maya suffers from Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) and in 2012 Ride for Maya hope to raise at least £20,000 for equipment by cycling 500 miles from Le Man's to Olney.
Individuals with SMA are living longer and fuller lives with the help of assistive technology such as ventilators, power assisted wheelchairs and modified access to computers. These mitigate the effects of SMA upon the individuals daily lives, allowing them to participate in the community like everyone else.
With your help we will succeed and every little does help so please give anything you can to today's bucket shake.
