Abbys Aussies Team Fundraising Page
I'm organising this team in honour of my beautiful and brave niece, Abby, who is one of only about 200 people worldwide diagnosed with Kat6A.
Over the weekend of October 3rd - 4th we'll be participating in KAT6A Foundation's virtual walk/run to raise awareness and funds for the Kat6A foundation!
How can you support our team?
==>Sign up to Run/Walk with us!
Due to covid restrictions, we are limited to groups of 10 people at a time in Brisbane. Therefore, we'll be doing several smaller walks over the weekend. Please consider joining us for one of these walks, or you could sign up to join our team with a few friends/family and organise your own walk/run as part of Abbys Aussies!
If you can, donations are very much appreciated, as they go towards research and supporting Kat6a families. More details below.

Where do donations go? Your donation goes directly to the KAT6A Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization supporting families and funding efforts to identify therapies for the KAT6A/B Disorder. The primary uses of the Foundation's funding are (1) bringing families and researchers together at the annual KAT6A clinic at Johns Hopkins University, (2) sustaining and expanding the patient registry database to support potential drug trials, (3) funding preliminary research into the molecular affects of the KAT6A and KAT6B genetic mutations, and (4) funding the Empowered grants that provide assistive equipment and technology to our families.
