Once again, over the next four weeks, I will be doing my 37th annual fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Last year’s fundraiser resulted in a total contribution to MDA of $134,325. As always, I am most thankful for the generosity and support that comes from this request. As in prior years, my fundraiser is simple. I will walk twenty miles over the course of a month and ask you to make a single charitable contribution to MDA for this effort.
As I say each year, the research efforts continue for a cure or at least an improvement in life for muscle disease patients. This is complicated and, as of now, much work continues particularly in gene therapy where research is underway for many genetic diseases. The collaboration across diseases should benefit all. I continue my involvement as a Vice President of the Association, with the hope and full expectation that a cure will be found for both Duchenne and Becker Dystrophies.
I hope you will help this year. The process of giving is easy since there are no dinners, no time commitments and 100% of your contribution goes directly to MDA. Many have now donated for 36 years, which is amazing. I would very much appreciate your participation and it’s very easy - just click on the link above.
Thanks for your continued support.
