Team Steward * Zackaroo
We are participating in the 2013 MDA Muscle Walk and we need your help! Our team is walking in honor of our friend, Zack Steward, who passed away in November 2012. Zack was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, but never let that get in the way of living life to the fullest. He deeply touched the many lives that he came into contact with and was always there for those that needed a good friend.
Now, I think it's time that we stand up and pay it forward in Zack's honor. Won't you join me?
Did you know that the incidence of Muscular Dystrophy is estimated to be 100 per 100,000 head of population? The incidence of Duchenne muscular dystrophy is estimated to be 1 in 4,000 live male births. Although DMD is by far the most common form of neuromuscular disease, it is not the only one. For instance, our friend Shayla has Charcot-Marie-Tooth.
Our desire to participate in the MDA Muscle Walk is fueled by the love we have for Zack, Shayla, and everyone else with Muscualr Dystrophy. Let them be YOUR reason to support our team!
The Muscular Dystrophy Association is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to finding treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The Association also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy, education and a summer camp program.
Please help Team Steward in raising funds so that we can support MDA's mission of help and hope!
Make a Muscle. Make a Difference.®
