Heidi and I would love to have you on our team!
Myself, my wife Heidi, and close friends of ours are all hoping to raise $10,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association this year by running the Marine Corps Marathon. The history of our fundraiser is centered on our family's diagnosis with Becker’s Muscular Dystrophy. Our oldest son Jack was diagnosed as being on the Autism spectrum in the summer of 2016 while we were stationed in Okinawa, Japan, which forced us to move back to the United States. Based off of his diagnosis we began a few basic tests, one of which revealed a deletion in his X chromosome consistent with Muscular Dystrophy. Since it is a genetic disease we then had to test Heidi and when it was discovered she also had the deletion we had to test our then, 5 month old son Maxton. He ended up showing the same deletion as well. Finding the Muscular Dystrophy Association and learning everything they provide for families has been a humbling and exciting experience knowing we can help contribute.
Not so sure about running a 10K or marathon? You can also make a donation towards our team. Every dollar enables MDA to enhance support and care, offer the highest quality programs and accelerate research efforts to bring more treatments to families faster.
