Central Indiana 2014 Muscle Walk

The Gates Gang


Join us for the MDA Muscle Walk.

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.



Please help us cross the finish line and FINISH STRONG together as a team. Join us for the Muscle Walk and we’ll have a great time for a great cause. You can also make a donation today, and help us reach our fundraising goal to support the families who depend on  MDA. Together, we grow stronger.
Make a Muscle. Make a Difference.®
