A Family Ride to End 4H Leukodystrophy

Oak Tree area to Green Springs and Back on Spring-to-Spring Trail
Open to All Ages / Water and Snacks Provided / Games for the Kids

Meet my two granddaughters, Jamie Rae and Layla Grace Alacan who are battling 4H Leukodystrophy. Their mother Courtney describes them as her warrior babies, and I could not agree more. I hope by doing this event many more people will join the fight against this terrible neurological disorder.  –Eddie Alacan

4H leukodystrophy is a genetic disorder that causes a lack of myelin, the fatty white substance that covers and protects nerve cells in the central nervous system.  The missing myelin causes problems with balance and walking, tremors, speech difficulties, uncontrolled muscle contractions, stiff muscles, and restricted movements. Other symptoms include abnormal tooth development, atypical puberty, short stature, and near sightedness.





Adults $25 and $100 in pledges from supporters

Children are free

Our Ethos

We are driven by the dream that one day, every child with 4H Leukodystrophy will have the chance to live a long, healthy life.

So we fight for these children by acting as a catalyst and a connector—bringing researchers together to accelerate the pace of discovery, while connecting families with vital education resources and emotional support.

We won’t stop until we find a treatment and, ultimately, a cure.
