BENEFITING: TEAM SAIJ - SIMPLY THE BEST
EVENT: 2nd Annual Dash for Duchenne
EVENT DATE: Jun 18, 2016
Walking for My Friends
Hi! My name is Akaal and I am raising money and walking for my friends Saij and Lucas who have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).
DMD has no cure and affects over 20,000 boys across the US. Boys with DMD lose their ability to walk and slowly lose muscle function in every part of their body, including the heart.
My buddy Saij is the face behind TEAM SAIJ. Saij is smart, funny and tough. He won't let DMD limit him, and talks about being 'President Saij Singh' one day—“FDR did it in a wheelchair; why not me?”
The money raised by Team Saij goes to research and finding a cure. I hope you will make a donation to help raise funds to find a cure for Saij, Lucas and all of the other boys out there.
Also, come out to Tilden Middle School in Rockville, Maryland on Saturday June 18th to walk/run/wheel at the 2nd Annual Dash for Duchenne. Wear your best Superhero gear because together we will all join forces in this fight for a DMD cure!
* TEAM SAIJ – Simply The Best was registered in 2011 as a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization inspired by Saij Singh and the desire to make a difference for him and all other boys affected by this life-threatening disease.
