I'm pumped up about the MDA Muscle Walk.

Welcome to my Muscle Walk Personal Fundraising page!

Shortly after the delight of seeing Ben run and barely jump, which were huge milestones, considering his years of therapy, we were shocked at his prognosis.  Since that time, we’ve been learning more and more about this devastating disease.  The Muscle Walk is one of the highlights of the year for our family. Being part of the 3,000 people fills us with a sense of support and hope. It is a big family reunion. There are other families there that know what our daily struggles and dreams are like for Ben. Every year, we leave the Muscle Walk more convinced than ever that a treatment will be found.

One of the hardest realizations we’ve had to come to terms with is that we cannot find a cure for Duchenne on our own. Our friends, relatives and acquaintances ask us, “What can I do to help?” We always tell them that they can join or donate to our Muscle Walk team. The best way to help Ben is to support the organization that helps him most; the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA); and the best way for you to help MDA is to support the Ben’s Bunch team at the Muscle Walk or by making a muscle make a difference at our annual Pump It Up Party With A Purpose.

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.  I walk for Ben and pledge for Ben and others fighting these fatal muscle diseases.
