Every day, children are born with muscular dystrophy and adults are diagnosed with ALS and other life-threatening diseases that take away their most basic freedoms - like walking, talking, eating, hugging, and ultimately life itself. I'm raising money to help MDA fight back!
MDA is working to give these abilities back through early intervention, local engagement, and the search for better treatments and cures.
NALC has helped lead the search for a cure for neuromuscular diseases for over half a century for MDA, raising over a million dollars annually. We continue to go the extra mile on the frontlines for MDA, even during a pandemic, we will continue to work to Deliver the Cure. The money we raise will help children and adults in our community, and will also help support innovative research to change the future for people with neuromuscular disease.
NJ Merged Branch 38 has often led the way in NALC's efforts in support of MDA. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our fund raisers had to be cancelled or postponed. Any help you can give to make up the difference will be greatly appreciated by Branch 38 and the people served by MDA.
I want to acknowledge that the donation in the amount ot $6,043.00 was not a personal donation from me, it was the result of our annual Bob Paccioretti Shamrock Drive and the continued generosity of the member of NJ Merged Branch 38.
