...for helping MDA
On behalf of the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the more than 250 Alaska families we serve, I would like to thank everyone who participated in MDA-Alaska's 17th annual Only Fools Run at Night on June 22. The event was a great success in terms of turnout and money raised to benefit MDA-Alaska, with 300 runners and walker participating and raising $9,450 in entry fees and fundraising. Without the generous support and help of Juneau residents and businesses, this event could not have happened.
The backbone of this event is the volunteers, sponsors, donors and participants. The Only Fools Run at Night could not have gone as smoothly and successfully as it did without everyone's support and contribution.
I want to extend my most sincere gratitude to the following sponsors and volunteers for their support of this event and MDA-Alaska: Juneau Racquet Club, Alaska Airlines, Printing Trade Company, Juneau Empire, KSUP/KINY, Oliver's Trophies, Tyler Rental, ACS Wireless, Nugget Outfitters, Centennial Hall, Zach Gordon Youth Center, Wings of Alaska, The Silverbow, Alaska Travel Adventures, Auke Nu Tours, the Fiddlehead, the Peeples Family, Officer Mike Tagaban and the Juneau Citizens Patrol, US Coast Guard Station Juneau, Ken Maas and the Southeast Roadrunners, Juneau Wholesale, Northern Sales of Alaska, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. of Juneau, Super Bear Supermarket, Fred Meyer, Runner's World, Stellar Designs, Glacier Gardens Rainforest Adventures, Perseverance Theatre, Seventh Heaven, Rainbow Foods, Glacier Cinemas, Thane Ore House, Eaglecrest Ski Area, Chilly Willy's Car Wash, Teena Laramie and the numerous volunteers.
Thank you all so much!
MDA-Alaska is committed to providing services for families in Alaska living with any one of 43 neuromuscular diseases. MDA believes that there are no incurable diseases, only disease for which there is no cure. As MDA scientists remain on the cutting edge of genetic research, a cure comes closer with each dollar raised. MDA-Alaska and the families we serve hope that day will come soon.
Thank you to everyone who made this event possible and everyone who believes in MDA-Alaska and our mission!
