NALC President Rolando walking for MDA

On May 19, NALC President Fredric Rolando will take a few steps to help “Deliver the Cure” for muscular dystrophy by participating in a Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Muscle Walk fundraiser in Alexandria, VA.

“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 give some of those freedoms back.”

Rolando is walking in the MDA Muscle Walk of Greater Washington, one of more than 150 such events held across the country each year. Rolando will join participants of all ages and abilities on a wheelchair-and equipment-friendly course.

If you are in the Alexandria, VA, area, please sign up for Muscle Walk to participate as part of Rolando’s team. If you are unable to join him in Alexandria, please support his effort with a donation.
