MDA OF EL PASO ANNOUNCES ANNUAL MUSCLE WALK EVENT
More than 600 people are registered to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association during the Sunland Park Mall Muscle Walk to help pay tribute to — and raise funds for — children and adults served by MDA in the west Texas and southern New Mexico area.
“We want to create awareness about MDA and our clients who need hope to continue their very personal journey.” The MDA Muscle Walk allows $$ to be directed to disease specific research. This is the chance for families to FIGHT BACK” said MDA Executive Director Kathleen Born. “By supporting the MDA Muscle Walk event on March 9th, people can make an immediate difference, continue hope and help raise awareness for research and vital services benefiting families served by the Association.”
The annual Sunland Park Mall Muscle Walk is scheduled for 8:00 am to 10 am on March 9th at the Sunland Park Mall Food Court. For registration information, visit www.musclewalkmda.org/sunlandpark, or call the local MDA office at 915-584-6355.
