DAYTON, Ohio - The 2009-10 Sinclair Community College Women’s Basketball team volunteered its time Labor Day at the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Association Telethon held at the Nutter Center.
Tartan Pride Basketball has been a participant in the MDA telethon for the last five years.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a voluntary health agency - a dedicated partnership between scientists and concerned citizens aimed at conquering neuromuscular diseases that affect more than a million Americans.
MDA combats neuromuscular diseases through programs of worldwide research, comprehensive medical and community services, and far-reaching professional and public health education. With national headquarters in Tucson, MDA has more than 200 offices across the country, sponsors 230 hospital-affiliated clinics and supports nearly 400 research projects around the world.
MDA supports more research on neuromuscular diseases than any other private-sector organization in the world. MDA scientists are in the forefront of gene therapy research and have uncovered the genetic defects responsible for several forms of muscular dystrophy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease), childhood spinal muscular atrophy, and several other neuromuscular conditions.
Those wishing to make a donation to the MDA are asked to call 1-800-FIGHTMD (344-4863) or log on to www.mda.org.
