I'm pumped up about the MDA Muscle Walk.

Welcome to JD's "Dudley Doright" Fundraising Page!

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. 

Make a Muscle. Make a Difference.®  

My name is JD and as many of you may know, I have facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD).  I was diagnosed with this rare form of muscular dystrophy at the early age of 17 which then ended my career playing tennis competitively.  In the early years after I was diagnosed things were not too difficult, but each year became more of a challenge and struggle due to the progression of this debilitating disease.

I am know 53 years old and my doctor says that I have severe muscle weakness in my face, back, shoulders, abdomen, legs and hands which affects my life every day.  The weakness in my legs causes me to lose my balance and also a tendency to cause me to fall.

I have been blessed with a wonderful wife and a dog named Sophie that we were able to train as my service dog with the help of a great trainer.  Sophie is able to assist me with mobility and daily chores that most take for granted. 

MDA has been of great assistance to me and my family throughout the years that I have dealt with this disease and I feel now is the time for me to give back to them.

We hope that someday soon through the MDA’s research, promising treatments and a cure will be found.  By donating to our team, the funds raised will help many families with their needs and with research much needed.

One of the hardest realizations I have had to come to terms with is that I can not find a cure alone, family, friends, coworkers and acquaintances, we need your help!!  Please join my team “Dudley Doright” and help us find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy. 

I hope you will join us in this fight and make a donation to this awesome cause by March 22, 2014.  It is one of the best decisions you will ever make!

Thanks to all of you in advance in helping us reach our goal.
