The total raised in 2019 was $1,363,608
“Letter carriers should be very proud of their efforts to support MDA, and the children and adults whose lives are made better and longer through its work,” Rolando said.

16 Michigan Branches Mentioned in the April 2020 issue of the
Postal Record for their efforts
Wonderful opportunities for children living with muscular dystrophy to spend time with kids who are just like them, doing activities adapted to their needs and establishing new friendships. NALC members are proud of the fundraising work we do all year long to support research to one day deliver a cure and to help make camps like these a reality.
A series of fun, non-competitive local walks held across the country, funding research and services for people with any of more than 40 muscle-damaging diseases. Muscle Walks provides an opportunity to honor adults and children with any of the more than 40 muscle diseases in MDA’s program, walk to have fun and get some light exercise, and raise funds to help MDA support research and provide vital services to families affected by neuromuscular disease.
One more way NALC can show how serious we are about our long partnership with MDA. For some branches, it might have been years since they’ve done any sort of MDA fund-raising. Others may never have. An event such as a bowlathon gives branches a project they can plug right into, with a goal of increasing branch and letter carrier participation.
Letter carriers, in uniform and with their postal satchels, set up at various locations around the country, collecting from motorists, pedestrians, shoppers—and even from the crowds heading into sports venues.

Volunteers getting ready
for MDA camp at Camp Cavell
MDA Camps 2019.
The NALC volunteers from across the state spent a great day with our friends at MDA camp. Summer camp is a wonderful opportunity for children living with Muscular Dystrophy to spend time with kids who are just like them, doing activities adapted to their needs and building new friendships. We take great pride in helping make this camp the great experience that it is. I hope to see you all there again next year.
Thank you to all those that work so hard to raise money for MDA. If your branch needs help in getting a fundraiser started, give me a call at (989) 213-6387 or contact the MDA office at (517) 706-0348.
