The Muscular Dystrophy Association is bringing strength to life for kids and adults in the Central PA communities with Muscular Dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases at the 2019 MDA Muscle Walk of Central PA – Hershey.
The 9th annual MDA Muscle Walk is a meaningful way for families, friends, neighbors and local businesses in the Hershey area to come together to raise critical awareness and funds for muscle-debilitating diseases that severely weaken muscle strength and mobility. This year’s walk is for participants of all ages and abilities, including a wheelchair and equipment-friendly course.
DJ Ricky will provide the live music. Kids and kids at heart will get a smile from our magician, Huffy the Clown, mascots, balloons, snacks, drinks and much more!
To register, visit mda.donordrive.com/event/centralpa or call the local MDA office at 717-540-4316.
More than 140 Muscle Walk events are expected to take place throughout the U.S. in 2019. Last year, dedicated participants raised over $7.5 million through Muscle Walk for MDA, and more than $50 million has been raised since Muscle Walk began in 2011.
Every dollar raised through Muscle Walk benefits MDA’s mission to fund groundbreaking research across neuro-muscular diseases and provide individuals with life-enhancing programs and support services, including state-of-the-art multidisciplinary care at the MDA Care Center at Penn State Hershey Medical Center in Hershey.
Funds raised also make MDA Summer Camp possible for area kids where they can experience the best week of the year at no cost to their families at Variety Club.
MDA Harrisburg also runs an equipment loan closet and bi-monthly support groups, which are run in Hershey.
