Supporting the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) November 28, 2018
Casey’s General Stores have raised more than $10 million since 2006 in support of MDA’s shared mission to find treatments and cures for people whose abilities have been compromised by neuromuscular disease — including everyday abilities like walking, running, hugging, talking and even breathing.
MDA Hero Award Recipient
It was my pleasure to join the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Iowa Muscle Team Gala last night — there was a lot to celebrate so thank you to everyone who was there to support MDA’s mission! There were a number of great families in attendance and it was so great to see Natalie Olsen, who has hashtag#SMA, and her father speak and share the progress she is making with Spinraza treatments.
It was inspiring to hear Jen Schwartz speak about her son, Ben, and their journey with hashtag#DMD over the last two years and on the support, knowledge & community they now have through this process thanks to MDA and our Resource Center. You don’t have to navigate your neuromuscular disease journey alone — MDA is here to help & can provide one-on-one support through our Resource Center.
Our presenter, Casey’s General Stores, Inc., hit a huge milestone in our partnership by officially reaching the $10mm mark in funds raised by Casey’s customers for MDA. I’d like to thank them both for their continued support & helping us advance our research efforts. One day we will be celebrating the milestone of the end of muscular dystrophy, neuromuscular diseases & hashtag#ALS. I also want to say a special thank you to Larry Dunnwald, MOBILEMONEY CEO & 2018 MDA Hero Award recipient, for their generous donation.
So, let's give a big shout out to Larry Dunnwald, and his generous spirit. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside that I am working for a company that gives back to the community and finds ways of making a difference in kids lives. You melt my heart, Larry Dunnwald.
We want to take this opportunity to allow for others to follow in Larry's footsteps, and donate to the MDA themselves. You'll find a link below which provides you the opportunity become a partner with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, or even to just make a one time donation.
Your donation will fund research and services to help kids and adults with muscular dystrophy live longer and grow stronger. BECOME AN MDA PARTNER TODAY
In addition to the Live Unlimited pinup sales, Casey’s contributions from year-round local events help support MDA families, including the Casey’s General Stores MDA Muscle Team Dinner & Auction on November 28, 2018, which MOBILEMONEY attended.
