BENEFITING: Muscular Dystrophy Association
ORGANIZER: Muscular Dystrophy Association
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Please support me in running for MDA Team Momentum in the New York City Marathon! As a part of this commitment, I’m raising donations which help support MDA summer camps, family support groups, MDA clinics, wheelchair equipment and research for cures.
It goes without saying that this cause is close to my heart. There is no other organization I would have wanted to run in the marathon for. Growing up with a sibling who has Muscular Dystrophy and attending MDA events taught me to appreciate my health, something that’s often taken for granted. While Danny is obviously very lucky that his condition is mild, most kids are not as fortunate. The week that I volunteered at MDA summer camp was honestly one of the best experiences of my life. It was very humbling and truly eye-opening into the lives of children who are affected by Muscular Dystrophy. They genuinely look forward to Summer Camp all year round and have an amazing week, getting to enjoy normal summer activities that they wouldn’t otherwise.
I’m truly excited to be a part of this team, and I hope you’ll support me so that I can finish the race and achieve my goal of raising $3,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Any donation would mean so much to me, and even more to those affected by Muscular Dystrophy.
