St. Louis Ataxia Support Group Recognized on CBS News for IAAD
The St Louis Ataxia Support Group and CBS Channel 4 celebrated International Ataxia Awareness Day for the entire month of September 2019! Our group and logo were profiled each weekday night on a segment during the weather, called the 4 Degree Guarantee. What is the 4 Degree Guarantee? If the actual temperature is within 4 degrees of the weather prediction, Channel 4 and Cardinals Care donate to that month’s charity. As of September 27, we had raised $1050 for the National Ataxia Foundation!

The Mississippi Chapter picnic was held on Saturday, September 1, 2019. Even though it rained most of the day, we were able to get outside for a few minutes to take this picture. Everyone had a good time and enjoyed some “good eats.”
