Gwendolyn Strong Foundation and Santa Barbara Wealth Management Firm Join Forces to Raise Funds and Awareness for Spinal Muscular Atrophy Research

Press Release | August 22, 2012

Mission Wealth Management, LLC aims to raise $10,000 towards research for a cure for spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) with the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation (theGSF.org) at the Santa Barbara International Marathon on November 10, 2012.

SMA is the number one genetic killer of infants and young children. Currently, there is no treatment and no cure to help children suffering from this degenerative disease which hinders their ability to walk, stand, eat, speak, breathe, and swallow.

In fact, the National Institute of Health (NIH) has identified SMA as a “model disease” because any advance in SMA genetic research has the potential to directly impact the treatment or cure of more than 600 other diseases, including muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

Mission Wealth Management is joining Team GSF and their clients, the Strong family, to help raise money for research towards a cure. “In working with the Strong family with their personal financial planning, we became aware of their mission with the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation,” said Seth Streeter, Co-Founder and President of Mission Wealth Management, LLC. “We were so moved by their tremendous passion and commitment that we wanted to show our support by participating in the upcoming Santa Barbara International Marathon to help raise funds and awareness for this most worthy cause. We invite the whole community to join us in what will be a very special day.”
