Hundreds of people participated and the event raised nearly $60,000 for the organization, which strives to make a real difference in the lives of people fighting life-threatening muscle disease.
The largest event of its kind, MDA Muscle Walk brings together communities of donors, families, partners, sponsors and volunteers to fight back against muscle disease.
Funds raised through the Muscle Walk program build on decades of research progress, helping push science to its limits in the search for treatments and cures, according to walk.mda.org.
Funds raised through Muscle Walk support MDA’s life-enhancing programs, including state-of-the-art clinics and support groups. They also make MDA summer camp possible, so kids with muscle disease can enjoy “the best week of the year.”
FoxCT is one of the sponsors of the 2015 Southern New England Muscle Walk for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
