I don't normally ask others for their support but this is a valid and important cause....
As long as I can remember, running and movement in general have been a liberating experience for me. And until recently, it was something that I took for granted. Even though I don't fully understand what it is like to be limited or living with a muscular dystrophy, I am here to play my part in supporting those that are.
As a member 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.
Every step I take while training for and racing in the Trail Mix 50K will help MDA fund groundbreaking research to accelerate treatments and cures and provide care and support for families who are counting on us. My goal is to raise $10 for every mile I plan to run on April 18th, 2020. That totals to $311 total.
This is where you come in. Your donation will help save and improve the lives of individuals with muscular dystrophy and the families who love them. Thanks in part to MDA Team Momentum participants and donors, MDA anticipates more new treatments in development during the next five years than in the previous five decades combined. Let’s keep and build this momentum. Please consider making a donation to support me in my upcoming race today. Thank you in advance for your support!
