What is MDA? Well I am glad that you asked! MDA stands for Muscular dystrophy (MD). Muscular dystrophy is a genetic disease that weakens the muscles that aid in helping the body move. Since it is a genetic disorder, babies are born with this disease and there is no known cure of muscular dystrophy. As a child grows in to their teens and in to adulthood, their muscles will gradually begin to weaken inhibiting movement causing them limited mobility to do normal daily functions (mda.org).
On April 26th, 2014 our very own Camden Cares Team came together to support those suffering with MD in the annual MDA Walk held at Memorial City Mall in Houston, TX. Our large group wearing blue Camden Cares shirts gathered together with Ace, our company mascot, and walked along together in unison for those suffering from MD. The experience was wonderful and very rewarding! Camden employees hustled for over a month reaching out to friends, family members, and the local community to donate money in order to raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Communities, residents, and employees came together and hosted events at their local communities to raise awareness for the cause and all proceeds earned from these events went towards the MDA. Camden communities hosted bake sales, car washes, pot luck luncheons, and more. Together the Houston Camden Cares Team raised over $10, 500 for the cause!! Thank you for all of those who donated and helped in supporting those affected by muscular dystrophy. This is one of the many ways that the Camden family gives back to their communities across the nation.
If you would like to support those suffering from muscular dystrophy we urge you to get involved! You can get more information at www.Mda.org.
