Join Team NALC Rolando for MDA

On May 18, NALC President Fredric Rolando will take a few steps for the many who can’t at the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Muscle Walk of Greater Washington, DC. The fundraiser kicks off at 10 a.m. at the Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex in Lanham, MD, not far from FedEx Field. The more feet that pound the pavement, the more NALC raises for its signature cause, so please join Team NALC Rolando for this family-friendly event.  The team’s goal is to raise $15,000.

“Every day, kids and adults are diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and related diseases that take away from the most basic freedoms—the freedom to walk, talk, hug and even breathe,” Rolando said. “By taking part in this Muscle Walk to help raise money and awareness for NALC’s only official charity, I hope to help those striving to get some of those freedoms back.”

The DC Muscle Walk is one of more than 150 such events held across the country each year. Team NALC Rolando will join participants of all ages and abilities on a wheelchair- and equipment-friendly course.

There are three ways to get involved: walk, donate or both.
