Well....I took the challenge. I'll be training for and running in the "Pretty Muddy" Mud Run on December 15th in Miami to raise funds for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. I NEED YOUR HELP!
Duchenne is one of the 43 types of neuromuscular diseases that MDA covers. Duchenne affects 1 in ever 3,500 little boys. Duchenne robs these boys of their childhood, and all of those things that we take for granted--running, swimming, walking, and much more.
I'm running this race in honor of one of my personal heroes, David and his mom Nadine. Nadine asked me if I wanted to run this race as she was celebrating a milestone birthday and has been really getting in shape and kicking ass (amongst all of the other things she does for her son and family!). I said I would, but in honor of her and David I would be raising money to END DUCHENNE! David is an awesome young man, who is so incredibly intelligent, sharp, sweet and funny. His DMD may have robbed him of his mobility and ability to "do" a lot of things--but it has not robbed him of his heart, smile and passion for life. I'm running and fighting for David and all of the young boys that SHOULD have the opportunity to do the same. I appreciate your support in my quest and know that it is truly making the difference in the lives of families just like David's. Nothing is greater than the gift of HOPE!
Make your muscles work for something good. Please sponsor my effort with a donation--seriously, every bit adds up...$5, $10...it all counts and helps MDA to further their mission of research and cures for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Thank you in advance for your support! Love you all!
Make a Muscle. Make a Difference.
