I'm pumped up about the MDA Muscle Walk.

Welcome to my Muscle Walk Personal Fundraising page!

I've grown up with Muscular Dystrophy my entire life.  My dad, sister, brother and myself all are diagnosed with Charcot Marie Tooth (CMT). Every family deals with things differently but we try our best to stay positive and maybe even use a little bit of humor to get through the tough times.

My sister and I take CMT to a whole new comfort level by wearing our leg braces with practically any outfit. I personally love to strut around Carmel High School in shorts and taped legs. Although my family and I try to make wearing our orthotics a fashion show, I realize that there are many people out there that have it much worse than us.

Being in a family that is affected by Muscular Dystrophy and as a Goodwill Ambassador for MDA I am trying to raise money for clinic visits, children who wish to go to camp, and most of all research. I hope that participating in the MDA Muscle Walk will help with these goals and help many families in the Central Indiana area.


Help me cross the Muscle Walk finish line and FINISH STRONG!  Join me at the Muscle Walk and we’ll have a great time for a great cause. Better yet, make a donation today, and help me reach my fundraising goal to help support the families who depend on MDA. Together, we grow stronger.
