Thanks for taking the time to visit my fund raising page.
The 2018 Marine Corps Marathon will be my 5th race with MDA Team Momentum. I continue to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association through these events to express my personal appreciation for the role MDA plays in the life of my son Owen, our entire family, and everyone that the MDA community touches.
Over the years MDA has provided so much to individuals with muscle disease. Owen is now 15 and his quality of life is tremendously improved by the efforts of MDA. Among the ways in which he is supported: Access to high quality healthcare; summer camp with kids facing the same challenges; clinical trials for new treatments and models of care; and most importantly - relationships with MDA staff and volunteers who dedicate their efforts to improving the lives of those with muscular dystrophy.
By running with MDA Team MOmentum I want to honor Owen's personal fight against muscular dystrophy; thank the people who are helping him on the journey; and raise awareness of the progress being made in reasearch and care.
This is where you come in. Your donation will help save and improve the lives of individuals with muscular dystrophy and the families who love them. Thanks in part to MDA Team Momentum participants and donors, MDA anticipates more new treatments in development during the next five years than in the previous five decades combined. Let’s keep and build this momentum. Please consider making a donation today. Thank you in advance for your support!
