 MDA Muscle Walk 2013

Team Peachy 

What is the MDA Muscle Walk?

The MDA Muscle Walk is a local walk event that pays tribute to children and adults with muscular

Dystrophy, while raising funds to support MDA’s missions of help and hope.

The walks are family-oriented gatherings that are open and accessible to everyone — children, adults, grandparents, students, corporate teams and more.

About MDA:

MDA is the nation’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to funding neuromuscular disease research, health care services and education. MDA supports cutting-edge neuromuscular disease research; ensures that all Americans affected by these diseases receive treatment and critical care; and serves as a voice for families with neuromuscular disease.

Why:

The MDA is very personal to my family, friends, and I. A disease called Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) is something that affects my mother, my children and me. CMT is one of the many types of neuromuscular disease covered by the MDA. MDA offers my family personal and emotional support any time we need it. Representatives of MDA attend specialist appointments for support, help with medical equipment (like my wheelchair), MDA Clinic appointments offering all specialist’s in one appointment, educate the kids’ schools so that they get the best possible education, send the children to MDA summer camp for a whole week every summer, opportunity to meet other’s like us, and most of all, pursue research that gives us HOPE.
