JSA bid to raise 2000 on 10K walk for Muscular Dystrophy charity
The JSA team will be heading to the South Downs at Goodwood Racecourse, near the city of Chichester, on the River Lavant, where the 10K walk will take place and they are aiming to raise £2,000 for the charity. JSA management, some of whom will also be taking part, will be providing coach transport there and back and have also promised to match the final total raised, hopefully bringing the total raised to a whopping £4,000!
The Muscle Help Foundationis a specialist family charity, which delivers personalised, transformational experiences in the UK called & lsquo;Muscle Dreams’, for young people suffering from the muscle wasting disease Muscular Dystrophy (MD) and allied neuromuscular conditions. Through these experiences and with their volunteers (known as & lsquo;Muscle Warriors), supporters, fundraisers and donors, the charity changes lives and gives hope. Muscular Dystrophy is the single biggest genetic killer of children in our world today. It robs sufferers of their mobility, their independence and, for those with the most severe type, predominantly children, their lives. There is no known treatment for this unforgiving disease.
JSA pledged to become involved with the charity after its CEO, Michael McGrath, himself diagnosed with MD at the age of 18 and now permanently in a powerchair, visited the company’s HQ in Watford recently and gave an fascinating and moving insight into the lives of MD sufferers and what the MHF does to bring strength, courage and hope into their lives.
