Hi Family & Friends!
As many of you know (and some may not) I am running the Chicago Marathon (my first marathon!!!) this October and dedicating my miles to a cause very near and dear to the Dovas Family. I am running with Team Momentum aka SawyerStrong- Sawyer is one of Peters friends and classmates who was diagnosed 2 years ago with Muscular Dystrophy.I've known this family for a long time as Sawyers mom is one of my running buddies and also a fellow boymom as Sawyer is one of 3 boys as well. When we say it takes a village- THIS is what its about-- rising up to help each other every single way that we can.
As a member of MDA Team Momentum, I'm dedicating my miles, muscles and personal finish line to Team Sawyer Strong.There have been so many recent break througs in recent years, but we can not stop fundraising until the cure is found. All of the money raised will go directly to Duchenne reasearch.
Every step I take while training for and racing in the marathon will help MDA fund groundbreaking research to accelerate treatments and cures. 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!
