Ataxia Charlevoix-Saguenay (ARSACS) Foundation

Autosomal Recessive Spastic Ataxia of Charlevoix-Saguenay (ARSACS) is a debilating hereditary and progressive childhood neurological disorder. The name of the disorder refers to the Charlevoix and Saguenay regions because the disorder is more frequent in these regions. The ARSACS Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving outcomes for ARSACS patients.  We are researchers – and friends and family members – who are trying to understand this devastating disease in order to develop new treatments for patients. To show our support for those affected by ARSACS, we are participating in the Scotiabank Charity run! This fun event allows us to share our commitment to ARSACS research while raising funds for the Foundation. 100% of funds raised through this charity run will go to the ARSACS Foundation! Please give generously!
