I am Fundraising for Muscular Dystrophy
I'm running my 2nd ever ultramarathon - the Elephant Trail Race - in July and am using the opportunity to do good in the community as well, by raising funds and awareness for kids, adults and families living with the devastating impacts of Muscular Dystrophy.
Muscular Dystrophy is a neuromuscular, genetic disorder which results in the progressive deterioration of muscle strength and function. Muscular Dystrophy is the name of one of many different neuromuscular conditions.
Neuromuscular conditions can affect people at different stages of their lives and onset of symptoms can occur from birth to adulthood, depending on the condition. The rate of progression and pattern of inheritance also varies depending on the condition and the individual.
Neuromuscular conditions are relatively rare, affecting approximately 1 in 1000 People and 24,600 people Australia wide.
Please help me crush my fundraising goal by making a secure tax deductable online donation and by doing a shout out on social media to encourage others to donate and help me through.
Together we can support people living with Muscular Dystrophy to live the life they choose!
