My name is John Henry, and my son has Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy. He was diagnosed 12 years ago, and I can honestly say the MDA makes a difference, through support, research, and raising awareness. I've done fundraising in the past, and perhaps you've seen me on the local telethon presenting checks. Well, I'm back after a hiatus, and this 30th Annual MDA Ride for Life is kind of a big deal. We're hoping to motor into Pennsylvania with over 100 motorcycles from the local New England area.
I'm raising money to help kids and adults break free from the harmful effects of muscle debilitating diseases – will you help me?
Did you know that muscular dystrophy, ALS and related disease take away everyday freedoms like walking, running, hugging and even breathing? That's why I'm participating in an event on behalf of MDA. MDA helps fund ground-breaking research across diseases, provides critical care from the first day of diagnosis and empowers families with services and support in hometowns across America. I have seen first hand the transformation of care for those affected by these diseases. We've come along way in the 12 years that we have been part of this community, but we still need to find a cure.
Please join me by making a donation! With your support, we'll move toward a future in which kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases live longer and grow stronger.
