MDA 2013 Walk Season Primed to Kick Off

The 2013 Muscular Dystrophy Association Muscle Walk season is in high gear. More than 50,000 people have committed to support the nationwide walks.

In addition, two companies from the mobility equipment industry have signed on as sponsors: Quantum Rehab, a division of Pride Mobility that manufacturers complex power wheelchairs and positioning systems, and ATG Rehab, a provider of rehab equipment.

"Today we encourage people to give back to families in their communities affected by neuromuscular disease by signing up for or donating to a Muscle Walk in their area for a day of fun and awareness with MDA," said Scarlett Marchman, MDA vice president of business development.

Last year, MDA Muscle Walk raised more than $6.2 million. More than 160 walks are scheduled from mid-January to mid-April.
