Your Neighborhood Jiffy Lube, a Big Part of MDA Fund Raising
Jiffy Lube has spent the past 39 years building a reputation for great service and caring about the surrounding community. Nothing shows their dedication as much as area events, like the MDA Golf Classic.
Fundraisers create an atmosphere where merchants and residents can come together in a common goal. Fighting Muscular Dystrophy is a national cause that spends millions each year to improve the quality of life of many affected individuals. Searching for an answer to this debilitating disease involves research. Without the support of fundraising, this cause would be very unlikely to continue.
Chicagoland Jiffy Lube MDA Golf Classic
Mark September 18, 2018 on your calendar for the Chicagoland Jiffy Lube Golf Classic for Muscular Dystrophy. Presented by Jiffy Lube and Pennzoil, the day at Bolingbrook Golf Club promises to offer a great time. The goal of this fun-filled event is to connect Jiffy Lube’s mission of expert preventive maintenance services with that of the life-changing efforts of the MDA. There will be an opportunity to meet members of the community that share MDA’s cause while enjoying a splendid day of golf.
During the month of August, you will have the opportunity to support MDA’s program and services, including MDA Summer Camp. The MDA Summer Camp gives kids with neuromuscular disease the opportunity to spend a week at a summer camp. The program is free to participating families. At camp, these kids experience awesome adventures in an environment where barriers don’t exist and they are able to meet new friends. Held once a year for the past 6 years, is made possible, in part, through involved local businesses, like Jiffy Lube.
The efforts of Jiffy Lube with the MDA Golf Classic in Chicagoland and the MUSCLE up! program that are sponsored each year, raise over one million dollars to provide necessary services, programs and research to one of America’s most complex diseases.
Muscular Dystrophy is a genetic disease that spans over 30 different types. Characterized by progressive weakness and degeneration of the skeletal muscles that control movement, there is no known treatment or cure. Duchenne MD is the most common form of MD and primarily affects boys although there are other forms that attack adults.
Community involvement has been key in supporting the research to find answers. While waiting, thousands of children are left to know the uncertainty of their lives. Through combined efforts of business and residents, fund raising efforts make it possible for affected children to enjoy a week of fun and exploration that they might not otherwise experience.
