2018 OFFICIAL CHARITY: MDA Team Momentum
One of our greatest priorities here at Life Time is giving back to the local communities that make our events possible. Our 2018 Official Charity Partner, the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), will be accepting valuable donations from our participants through online and in-person registration for the race. In addition, we are excited to partner with MDA Team Momentum as our Official Charity Training Partner.
MDA is fighting to free individuals — and the families who love them — from the harmful effects of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases so they can live longer and grow stronger. Please consider making a donation to MDA or joining their running/walking team today. For more information about the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Team Momentum please visit MDATeam.org.
How can I join the team?
Interested in making your miles mean more? Join MDA Team Momentum! When you join Team Momentum, you dedicate your miles, muscles and personal finish line to freeing families from the harm of muscle-debilitating diseases that take away everyday freedoms like walking, running, hugging and even breathing.
Team Momentum participants fundraise on behalf of MDA and the families that they serve and receive coach supported training, team gear, race entry, personal fundraising webpage and fundraising guidance, a community of support and camaraderie with Mentors and teammates, VIP event weekend amenities including an Inspiration Dinner, private pre-and post-race space with private gear check and bathrooms and on-course support. And of course, motivation from knowing that you’re moving your muscles to strengthen the muscles of kids and adults with muscular dystrophy. Questions? Reach out to Chelsea at CSteed@mdausa.org.
