Race ‘N’ Roll 2017

Not even rain could dampen the mood of Race ‘N’ Roll 2017. Racers and volunteers were treated to fresh egg rolls, fruit, bagels, and a festival voucher to use at the Filipino festival in the afternoon. Prizes were awarded to the overall top male and female racers and top 3 male and female racers in different age categories. Congratulations to all the participants and top racers who helped us raise funds to increase the quality of life for those living with muscular dystrophy. CFMD raised almost $6,000 in gross proceeds.

CFMD would like to thank all of the volunteers, race planning committee and sponsors who helped to make this event a success!

Dine for Muscular Dystrophy

CFMD hosted its second Mosaic Night Gives Back on 11/8/17 in honor of Aileen Colorado’s birthday. The restaurant was filled with sounds of friends and family laughing and sharing a delicious meal together. Two of Aileen’s favorite things! Mosaic donated 13% of its proceeds to CFMD. Thank you to everyone who came out to support our cause. It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces!

Summer Camp Fun

Every summer, kids with muscular dystrophy are invited to participate in MDA summer camp in Wakefield, Virginia.  For one week, kids have the opportunity to experience summer time activities like arts and crafts, canoeing, horse back riding, adaptive sports, and more.  It currently costs $2000 for each child to attend camp.  Last year, CFMD sponsored one child. This year, CFMD donated $4,000 to sponsor 2 children to give them the best summer experience!
