MD-Palooza is a benefit concert formed to raise research money for a local Powhatan boy named Westley. Westley Groseclose is a typical 12 year old 6th grader and very much like every other child his age. He enjoys video games, art and playing outside. Westley has always been physically slower than his classmates but never gives up trying to keep up with them. In September 2010 his parents discovered the source of his physical limitations. Westley was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Duchenne is a form of muscular dystrophy which causes rapidly-worsening muscle weakness that starts in the legs and pelvis, and later affects the entire body including his heart and lungs. It is caused by a defective dystrophin gene (a protein in the muscles). This protein is like the chocolate chips of a cookie. Those without Duchenne are Chocolate Chip Cookies and boys like Westley are Sugar Cookies. Westley’s body is missing the “chips” that make and keep muscles strong. Over time this disease has begun to limit his activity. His parents, Dallas and Jessica and younger brother Wyatt are committed to fighting this disease along with Westley by raising money for research and giving Westley all the love, fun and confidence to help him keep the positive outlook he has on life. If you would like to learn more about Duchenne or Westley’s story please visit: http://westleyswarriors.com/

After three concerts the MD Palooza has raised over $18,000 for families with Muscular Dystrophy. One of the things we love the most is being able to donate a piece of durable medical equipment to a family in need. 2015 was an epic concert and we are ready to go BIG or go HOME in 2016!
