San Francisco Bay Area Muscle Walk

The Defenders

Join our family for our first muscle walk!

Please help us cross the finish line and FINISH STRONG together as a team.

 Andrew and Matthew have Becker muscular dystrophy. It is a genetic degenerative disease primarily affecting voluntary muscles. At this point, the disease is slowly deteriorating their muscles, which makes it hard for them to walk long distances, climbing up the stairs, and it limits them to certain physical activities. The things we do without thinking twice is a struggle for them. The prognosis is not good. It will only get worse. They may face respiratory and heart problems. There is still no cure, so we are at a race against time.

It will mean so much to us, especially to Andrew and Matthew if you can join us in this fight for a cure. Once you join our team "The Defenders" You can make a donation and set a fundraising goal for yourself to help us, or just join the walk to show your support. No amount is too little and it is tax deductible. 

100% of the funds we raise goes  directly to MDA. MDA is the nations largest non-profit voluntary health agency that is dedicated to funding cutting-edge neuromuscular disease research, healthcare services and education, and ensuring families who are affected receives treatment and critical care, durable medical equipment repairs, support groups, and help send kids to summer camp.


Don't wait another minute to think. Help us build a stronger community of supporters! 

 Make a Muscle. Make a Difference.®
