Matthew Greiner is a typical 3 year old boy. He loves cars, trucks and trains,asks a lot of questions, has strong opinions and a laugh that can brighten any day. What is not typical about Matthew is that he has a genetic disorder called Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This neuromuscular disease slowly strips boys of their muscle function and tragically, is 100% fatal. We are fighting to reverse the fate of our little boy by raising awareness and funds to support research for treatment of DMD.
To accomplish this mission, we created IMAGINE HOW as a vehicle to spread the word about Duchenne and establish a unique fundraiser that would be far reaching. The premise is as follows:
* To recruit people to host an event to share the message about Duchenne and Matthew, in particular. * To reach beyond our network of family and friends as each host engages his or her community of family and friends. * To inspire others to join the cause and share the message. * To raise funds for critical research dollars
Last year, friends of IMAGINE HOW raised $61,870! through 27 events in 4 states to benefit Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy. Be a part of something big, something fun and something powerful. /Imagine How/ much of an impact you can make on the life of a child.
Please join us to celebrate Matthew's life as he turns 4 this year and join us in the fight to end Duchenne.
