'Unite 4 Peyton' Needs Your Help Fighting Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Local charity, Unite 4 Peyton, needs area support to receive a $250,000 grant from Chase Community Giving. Area residents can make a huge impact by voting on Facebook.

Greenfield, WI (August 24, 2012) – Unite 4 Peyton, a non-profit working to
raise awareness and funds to help families affected by Spinal Muscular Atrophy,
is competing with charities nationwide for grants ranging from $10,000 to
$250,000 from the Chase Community Giving program. Residents can help ensure
their success by simply voting for Unite 4 Peyton through the Chase Community
Giving program on Facebook.

Through the utilization of social media networks, the Chase Community Giving
program has already directed more than $20 million dollars toward charities
nationwide, putting the power to bring positive change across the nation into
the hands of those who need it most. Due to enthusiasm, the program is being
continued this year, giving hundreds of additional charities, including Unite 4
Peyton the opportunity to win grants to further their mission.

“Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a disease that can devastate a family.
Learning that your child has SMA not only impacts the family emotionally but
financially too. Typically only a portion of the lifesaving equipment is
covered by insurance companies and many families affected by SMA are in need of additional resources and costly equipment to help their child live life to its
fullest.”

The Fall 2012 round of the Chase Community Giving program is designed to
benefit smaller and local charities by being limited to 501(c)3 charities with
operating budgets under $10 million. The top eligible charity receives $250,000
and the remaining 195 top charities earn $10,000 through $100,000 awards, for a
total of $5 million dollars in grants.

With the support of our volunteers, fans and local residents, Unite 4 Peyton
has the opportunity to get much needed resources to implement big changes!
Unite 4 Peyton has donated lifesaving generators, I-pads, purchased specialty
wheelchairs and provided financial support for many families affect by SMA.
