Muscular Dystrophy Walk Fundraiser

The Tri-city area of Loganville, Grayson and Snellville is working to help find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy.

Local Muscular Dystrophy Walk Team, Steppin’ for Stephen, will be having their 9th annual Willow House Raffle Fundraiser Party at 7 p.m. on Aug. 30.  (Willow House was formerly Southern Living at Home)

The fundraiser will take place at the Wildwood at Meadowgate Clubhouse located at 320 Wild Barley Lane in Loganville.  The walk team was put together in honor of Stephen Miller, a young man who suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  Stephen was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in October 2003 at the age of 8.

This is a very progressive type of disease in which the muscles deteriorate.  You can understand why Stephen’s parents, family and friends are anxious to find a cure for him as well as all the children who suffer from this disease. 

One hundred percent of the proceeds from this fundraiser with go towards the annual MDA Muscle Walk that will be March 23, 2013 at Turner Field. More than  50 local merchants in the tri-city area of Loganville, Grayson and Snellville have participated in the raffle by donating over $3500 in gift cards and product!
