About three weeks ago I got a call out of the blue that started with: "We want to put you in jail." At first I was slightly startled, but my "guilt " was lessened when the caller told me that this was a call to help the Muscular Dystrophy Asociation with a fundraiser for disabled children.
Before I get into the discussion about the fundraiser let me take a moment to explain Muscular Dystrophy.
What Is Muscular Dystrophy
M.D. is a general term for hereditary diseases that attacks the skeletal muscles and often other organs. muscles. The disorder differ in terms of severity, age of onset and other particulars.
The most common form of muscular dystrophy is Duchenne. It primarily affects boys and is caused by not having dystrophin, a protein that helps maintain the muscle to work properly. Most with this form are unable to walk by age 12 and many end up on a respirator. There are about 400-600 new cases each year in the United States. (1) (2)
What Can You Do To Help Fight Muscular Dystrophy
If you would donate some "bail" money for me every cent goes directly to muscular dystophy to help those afflicted . Contributing to the MD Blue Ash, Ohio lock up is as easy as clicking on this link. MDA Lock Up This is a great charity event where others will also be "locked up" at the Firehouse Grill. They will pick me up on Wednesday, November 6th and take me to jail while I await enough bail to be set free.
My particular bail has been set at $1600. This is enough to send two kids to summer camp. By donating to this cause, you will be participating in this event and making a difference in the fight against Muscular dystrophy.
