The Spina Bifida Association of Iowa is excited to host the 2024 2nd Annual Golf Outing on Friday, May 3rd. SBAIA serves adults and children who are affected by Spina Bifida. Our mission is to build a better and brighter future for all those impacted by Spina Bifida. Some of the ways we are able to do that is through Educational programs, Mentoring Programs, Grant Assistance Programs, Social Events, Camp Scholarships, College scholarships, we also help families and individuals with Spina Bifida connect to one another through these programs as a community because we are stringer together! This golf outing is going to help us raise more money for our organization to continue the work we are doing and look to the future on how we can continually better assist our community.
Spina Bifida is the most common permanently disabling birth defect that is associated with life in the United States. It’s a type of neural tube defect that occurs when a baby’s neural tube fails to develop or close properly – the literal meaning for Spina Bifida is “split spine”. Typically occurring within the first 28 days of pregnancy, while the neural tube is forming, Spina Bifida often occurs before a woman knows she is pregnant.
Commonly referred to as the “snowflake condition” of birth defects because no two cases are the same, Spina Bifida can range from mild to severe. The severity depends on everything from the size of the opening to the location on the spine.
Our goal is to reach $12k to be able to disburse evenly throughout the different programs that we offer. Come out enjoy a game of best ball with your pals and support an organization that is continually bringing smiles to families faces. We look forward to seeing you.
