WHAT: More than 500 people from Northeast Indiana are registered to take a small step to fund powerful progress for the Muscular Dystrophy Association during the annual MDA Muscle Walk of Greater Fort Wayne to raise critical funds and awareness that will help MDA save and improve the lives of local children and adults fighting muscle disease.

To register, visit http://www2.mda.org/site/TR/Walk/General?fr_id=16219&pg=entry, or call the local MDA office at 260-486-6698.

WHEN: March 22nd, 2015
Doors open at 12:30 pm, Walk is at 2:00 pm

WHY: Funds raised at the Muscle Walk allow MDA to invest in research to find treatments and cures. They also help support MDA’s life-enhancing programs such as state-of-the-art support groups and clinics, including the MDA Clinic at Lutheran Hospital. In addition, they make MDA summer camp possible so kids with muscle disease can enjoy “the best week of the year” at Camp Potawatomi in South Milford, IN.

MDA Muscle Walk is largest, most inspiring event of its kind, bringing communities together — donors, families, partners, sponsors and volunteers— to fight back against muscle disease. Approximately 150 walks throughout the nation are scheduled throughout the year that will build on decades of research progress, helping push science to its limits in the search for treatments and cures.
