My big kid is #whyIwalk. Since my son’s diagnosis in 2015, our family has participated in the Milwaukee Area MDA Muscle Walk, raising over $10,000 to support kids and families affected by muscle disease. Way back in 2015 when the MDA staffers needed a name to register our team, I stumbled and blurted out Greater Than Gravity. It stuck, and I’m pleased to report that our Greater Than Gravity collective has been among the top fundraising teams at our local event since we began.
In light of my husband’s accident last year, and the incredible support we received from our friends, family, and even strangers, I just didn’t feel this was the year to ask those very same people to support a fund-raising effort at my request, so we are sitting 2020 out.
