I'm pumped up about the MDA Muscle Walk.

Welcome to my Muscle Walk Personal Fundraising page!



Muscular Dystrophy is a disease that affects many families.  For me, the struggle hits all too close to home because I watch Steve, Niki, Matt and Samantha deal with it every day of their lives.  Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) is the form of Muscular Dystrophy that my husband and all three of my children have and I hope and pray for a cure in my lifetime.  

Although CMT is not life threatening it definitely is life altering.  I am contantly amazed at the inner strength that my family has and how they handle each day with dignity and grace.  Surgeries, orthotics, physical therapy and countless doctor's appointments are just a few of the things that families with Muscular Dystrophy have to deal with on an all too familiar basis.  Please help The Gates Gang do our part so that other families don't have to go through what my family has been through.

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.
