On Saturday March 27th, 2009 VMI was a proud sponsor in the MDA’s 11th Annual Stride and Ride in Tempe, Arizona. The MDA is trying to make STRIDES to find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy. For over a decade, VMI has focused all our fund raising dollars to the MDA because we believe in their cause and their wonderful organization.
The event started at 9am with a 5K walk/run/stroll. The weather was a perfect 65 degrees at the start of the race and warmed up nicely by the time it was over. VMI was there, not only as a sponsor, but also to help people who couldn’t finish the entire race. We also had a few people who needed to be picked up in our wheelchair accessible vans because their scooter batteries were dead.
Remember that fund raising like this are vital to finding a cure for the horrible diseases that are out there. When there is a race, walk, bake sale or any fund raising activity, please contribute something. Without donation dollars, these organizations cannot succeed, and cures cannot be found.
