Hello, my name is Nicholas Shaver, welcome to My Personal fundraising page for the MDA.
I will be running the 2019 Chicago Marathon in order to fundraise and raise awareness for the MDA! The MDA is dedicated to helping kids and adults living with Muscular Dystrophy, ALS, and other related diseases. I am joining Team Momentum along with multiple members of the Bloomington (Illinois) Fire Department, Local #49. The fire department and local have been very involved with the MDA, raising money annually through the Fill the Boot campaign. Many of us wanted a way to give more to the MDA, while challenging ourselves along the way. My teammates and I are dedicating each and every step we take in training and during the marathon to the MDA. Our hope is our efforts will raise money, furthering research in treatements and providing care for those who depeand on the MDA.
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 and my teammates in the upcoming Chicago Marathon. Thank you for your support!
