Welcome to Amanda's Fundraising Page!
When I got the job as Executive Director for the Greater Philadelphia Muscular Dystrophy Association, I had no way of knowing how much this job would inspire me and change me. In my two years with the MDA, I have been inspired by countless local families battling muscle disease. Running for Team Momentum is a chance for me to personally fundraise and advocate for the children and families I have come to love who live with these diseases every day.
As a member of MDA Team Momentum, I’m dedicating my miles, muscles and personal finish line to helping kids and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases live longer and grow stronger. I also run for those we have lost, including Pete and my dear friend LJ, whose life was cut short in March 2018. I will think of these and all of the children who are taken from us way too soon.
Every step I take while training for and racing in the Rock 'n' Roll Philadelphia race will help MDA fund groundbreaking research to accelerate treatments and cures and provide care and support for families who are counting on us.
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 to support me in my upcoming race today. Thank you in advance for your support!
