MDA REPORT

 

        What does MDA stand for? (Muscular Dystrophy Association) When the freedom to walk, to talk, to run and play, to laugh, to hug, to eat and to breathe is taken away from kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that weaken muscle strength and limit mobility.

      What is our donation used for? Our donation is used to help fund research and services to help kids and adults with muscular dystrophy live longer and grow stronger. With that being said:

      Thanks for another great year! We set a new record for money raised for MDA. In 2018, Branch 2184 raised a total of $12,082.17 beating our 2017

total of $12,009.53. There are a few planned MDA events for 2019. The branch has scheduled a Bowl-a -thon, Fill the Satchel and the canister drive event, please plan on attending or volunteering to one or all of the activities planned this year for MDA. Our next scheduled MDA event will be our Bowl-a-thon in April, so bring your team and join in the fun for our annual Bowling Battle of the Branches! There will be prizes for our top individual fundraisers, remember it's not your bowling score that counts - it's the amount of money raised through donations and pledges that determine the winner. Thanks in advance and see at the Bowl-a-thon.
