Muscular Dystrophy Association

DULUTH (Duluth Weekly) - Whether you walk by foot, paw, hoof, or wheels, the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) invites you to attend its annual “Walk of Hope” on November 6th at Zoo Atlanta.

Walkers will put together a team or join in on an existing team to raise money for MDA. Each team has a goal of $1,000 but each person is asked to raise at least $100 to participate. Every team comes up with a fun name that encourages them to remember that they are walking for a good cause and to have a good time.

Several MDA families will be participating including Stephen Miller of Loganville, who is a part of the “Steppin’ for Stephen” team. Last year, Stephen’s team raised over $20,000 for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research and he is excited about this year’s walk. “The walk overall was great because there were more walkers than we had ever had,” said Stephen. “I am excited about this year’s walk because I think we will raise enough money to find a cure for muscular dystrophy.”

Proceeds for the event will directly benefit local children and adults living with neuromuscular diseases by providing clinic visits, support groups, assistance with repairs of wheelchairs, vital research, and a chance for children and young adults to attend MDA Summer Camp Walk-N-Roll in Rutledge, GA.

For more information on how you can join in the fun of MDA’s “Walk of Hope” visit our website at www.mdawalkofhope.com.
