For the past four years I have participated in endurance events such as the Chicago Marathon. I do this to raise money and awareness for muscle disease. Muscular Dystrophy has had a profound effect on My Family. I lost My Mother, Aunt and Grandfather to muscle disease. I currently have two siblings living with muscle disease. This year I will be runningthe Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC to raise funds to help find a cure and provide assistance for those living with muscle disease. Seventy seven cents of every dollar raised by MDA directly impacts its clients with research, treatment and financial assistance. I hope I can count on you for support this year. Thank you for taking time to read this. Please share this with anyone you think may have an interest in supporting my efforts for MDA. As a Alumni of MDA Team Momentum, I'm dedicating my miles, muscles and personal finish line to helping kids and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases live longer and grow stronger.
