Dear friends and family,
In light of Amy's recent Muscular Dystrophy diagnosis of Bethlem Myopathy, she and I have decided to team up with MDA Team Momentum who is dedicated to help raise funds for research to help find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy. Amy and I are excited for the opportunity to join in the fight to help find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy.
I was already 14 weeks into training for Boston 2019 when we discovered this diagnosis and MDA partner. There's only 6 weeks left to the race on April 15th! As a member of MDA Team Momentum, I'm now able to dedicate my miles, muscles and personal finish line to helping Amy as well as other adults and kids living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases live longer and grow stronger.
Even in high school and college, Amy and I would watch the MDA telethon and I would make donations of $5 as a poor college student because she had always been told that what she had was like Muscular Dystrophy, but she had not been diagnosed.
This is where you come in. Please join us as we kick off our dedication to helping to find a cure! 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!
Jamie & Amy
