Help us raise funds for little Louis


Our friend, little Louis, is battling SMA1. Spinal Muscular Atrophy – Type 1, also known as Werdnig Hoffmann disease, is a genetic neuromuscular disorder that affects the nerve cells that control voluntary muscles (motor neurons).

With treatment, Louis will sit up, crawl and walk.
Without treatment, his muscles will gradually waste away.

Louis requires regular trips to Brisbane, different therapies, special products and so much more… PLAY CHESS AND HELP LOUIS!

  • We will have random prizes throughout the day.
  • Music and other fun games to keep participants smiling.
  • Snacks and drinks for sale. (100% profits go to Louis).
