I'm pumped up about the MDA Muscle Walk.

Welcome to my Muscle Walk Personal Fundraising page!

 

I am excited about joining the 2014 greater Philadelphia MDA muscle walk to be held March 30 at the King of Prussia mall. This is the second year that I have been part of the walk and my team had a great time last year. Here is a little about my story. I was diagnosed with Becker's muscular dystrophy over 35 years ago. ; However, I have and continue to live a full and active life. In the past I graduated with an Associate’s degree from Delaware technical community college and obtained a bachelor’s degree at Wilmington University. I worked in the financial community for 25 years. Currently   I remain active in my church and am involved on volunteer basis in disability advocacy actively serving on the executive committee of the Community Advisory Council at the Center for Disabilities Studies at the University of Delaware. I currently reside at the Mary Campbell center where the staff assists me in maintaining an active lifestyle in my motorized chair and keep my muscles and breathing function working as best as possible.   The money raised for this event stays in the local area and helps many people. MDA is the world leader in funding neuromuscular disease research seeking treatments and cures for the       more than 40 neuromuscular diseases in its program. There is no single disease called muscular dystrophy. The term refers to a group of genetic neuromuscular diseases. MDA supports more research on muscle disease than any other private-sector organization in the world. MDA maintains the most comprehensive services program of any nonprofit health agency, helping individuals and their families meet the challenges imposed by chronic, progressive neuromuscular diseases. Included among these services are:• Nationwide network of medical clinics• Assistance with the repairs of medical equipment• Medical equipment loan program• Support groups• Summer camp programs for kids• Flu shots• Resource referrals
