BENEFITING: The Transverse Myelitis Association
The goal of the Michigan Walk-Run-N-Roll Campaign is to increase awareness and raise funds for research and programs for individuals suffering from Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM), Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO), Optic Neuritis (ON), Transverse Myelitis (TM) and Recurrent Transverse Myelitis, and their caregivers.
On October 5, 2013, beginning at 8:00 a.m., the TMA Walk-Run-N-Roll Awareness Campaign in Michigan will be held on the campus of Harderwyk Ministries located at 1627 West Lakewood Boulevard, Holland, Michigan 49424.
I’m inviting all my family & friends to donate & walk in honor of all those affected with Transverse Myelitis (TM) and the many other neurological diseases.
It will be 4 years on Dec 8th that I woke up paralyzed from the chest down. After two months in the hospital, I was sent home with my new lifeless body, I learned how to drag it around with me day after day. I made a promise to myself that I would not stay in a wheelchair if it took me my whole life. Through the years of physical therapy, medication, counseling and faith. I’ve been able to go from a wheelchair, to a walker and now to a cane. Its all because of my family and friends, who had faith in me, when I didn’t.
I sincerely believe with awareness & fundraising we have the ability to change the future with education & research on TM & other demyelinating disorders as supported by the Transverse Myelitis Association.
Please consider donating & coming out to support all of us and the TMA on October 5! If you can't be there with us in person, you can still donate & be a part of Darla’s Darminators! No amount is too big or too small! Please feel free to join my team or if so compelled, start your own team!!
The venue is a quick 2.2 miles from the soft sands of Holland State Park and 5.5. miles from the quaint shops and restaurants of downtown Holland. The Michigan Walk-Run-N-Roll event is near the shores of Lake Michigan and only 2.5 hours north of Chicago! We look forward to your support; come join us and let’s raise awareness and funds to advance clinical care and research for rare neuro-immune diseases.
Registration opens at 8 AM and the walk will begin at 9:45 AM.
Sign up before September 1st to get the First Annual TMA Michigan Walk-Run-N-Roll T-Shirt!
Many thanks from the bottom of my heart! Darlene (email@example.com)
