Rebecca Van Fraassen held the `Be an Angel' box at Sobeys recently as local Acton merchants kicked off the third annual Wings for SMA fundraiser. Joining her were (from left) Sobeys cashier Catherine Locke, Staying Alive Fitness owner Nancy Elop and Blue Springs Spa owner Kristine Cieslok. The campaign raises money to fund research for a cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), the number one genetic killer of children under the age of two. Through June 18 $2 donations will be accepted at Sobeys checkouts. Those who donate will have a chance to win a prize package valued at $375, that includes a dinner for four from Sobeys valued at $100, a day spa package from Blue Springs Spa and Salon valued at $200 and a one-month membership to Staying Alive Fitness valued at $75. Donations can also be made at Blue Springs Spa and Staying Alive Fitness through June 18. Funds raised will be presented at the fifth annual Rebecca Run for SMA, Saturday, July 8 at Fairy Lake in Newmarket. Organizers hope to surpass the $500,000 mark for the five years of the run with this year's campaign.
