Muscular Dystrophy Helps Hopeful

Muscular dystrophy is a disorder that results in muscle weakness and a decrease in muscle mass over a period time. In the Muscular Dystrophy field there are 43 different types disorders.

To paint a picture here are a few numbers- 30, for every $30 raised that's the equivalent to one person with Muscular Dystophy getting a flu shot, 70, for every $70 that amounts to one minute of Muscular Dystrophy research.  If you take that minute turn it into an hour and that number comes out to $4,200.

Despite those displeasing numbers, members of the Muscular Dystrophy Association in Wyoming had much to celebrate at their annual Muscle Walk.
