Join My Team!
Max Adler launched Team Mighty Max because he watched his Mom and Grandma struggle with this disease. Determined to do all he could so that no one would have to go through this ever again, he joined forces with the FSHD Society and determined to be a part of the solution. That's what Team Mighty Max is all about and he is inviting anyone of like mind, anyone determined to be a force for positive change and help bring about a cure for FSHD, to join his team for this year's Walk & Roll to Cure FSHD.
"I watched my Mom and Grandma struggle with this disease, and I don’t want that to happen to anyone, anywhere, ever again. The money we're raising by participating in this Walk & Roll is supporting programs and funding research that will directly impact patients and their families living with FSH Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD)." - Max Adler
The money we're raising by participating in this Walk & Roll is supporting programs and funding research that will directly impact patients and their families living with FSH Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD). Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, or FSHD, is a genetic disorder that leads to the weakening of skeletal muscles. It affects an estimated 1 in 8,000 individuals, or an estimated 1 million people worldwide. Around 20% will need a wheelchair by age 50; over 70% experience debilitating pain and fatigue. We want to stop FSHD in its tracks.
There is no effective treatment or cure, yet... but there is hope.
You can join us as a team member, set up your own personal fundraising page, then invite your family and friends to support you as we move toward a cure. As a participant and fundraiser, you're eligible for lots of great rewards.
Or, you can make a donation to support Max's efforts! Either way, thank you for your support!
