Welcome to my Muscle Walk Personal Fundraising page!
Hey everyone it's Kristen.... as you may or may not know I was born with FSHD a form of muscular dystrophy. I had a fairly normal childhood but started to struggle with it in my teenage years. I use a wheelchair now but am still able to walk a little bit! With this form of MD it is a progressive thing so over time it will get worse but I say we have become pros at adapting to our situations and even though things take alot more effort or have to go about doing them in a different way we still make it happen. As hard as it is, it's not the loss of the ability to do things that scares me the most. The difficulty breathing, something that so many people take for granted and very rarely think about is a concious effort on my part each and every day. Also the effects it has on our hearts as well. But together we have the ability to help change the outcome through events like this we can fund critical research that can better the lifes of so many people!!! So please if you are able, give the gift of hope for those of us suffering. I know times are tough so if you are unable to give a monetary donation please consider joining our team and donating your time to help raise funds. This is my first time taking part in this walk and I am super excited to see what we are able to accomplish together!!!!
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.
