Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida

Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida® is a family-friendly one mile walk and festival that raises critical funds, increases awareness of Spina Bifida, and celebrates the more than 177,000 Americans living with Spina Bifida. Last year, at the fourth annual Las Vegas Walk-N-Roll over 500 people attended to help us raise over $35,000 for local programs and services!

Spina Bifida is the most common permanently disabling birth defect in the United States . An average of 8 babies every day are born with Spina Bifida or a similar birth defect of the brain and spine. There are over 65 million women in the US who could become pregnant and each one is at risk of having a baby born with Spina Bifida.

Spina Bifida occurs when the spine of the baby fails to close. This creates an opening, or lesion, on the spinal column. Spina Bifida happens during the first month of pregnancy when the spinal column and brain, or neural tube, is formed. This is before most women even know they are pregnant.
