‘There’s been a show of strength in support of people living with muscular dystrophy.’

Australian television presenter, Kristy Mayr and hundreds of Melbournians and interstate visitors ran and walked alongside those who can’t at Muscular Dystrophy Australia’s annual Run for Strength in Albert Park last Sunday.

The inaugural Run for Strength event, first held in February 2009, was the brainchild of Ozi Akyildiz, father of Kaya who has muscular dystrophy, and his friend Sam Quattrone.

The superhero themed fun run was open to all ages and abilities and had a record turn out this year with many members of the MD community, their friends and family taking part.  Including Jayden who chose to celebrate his eleventh birthday by raising funds with his mighty team: Team JayJay.

Donations are open until 15 March, please make a difference and support your favourite team today at: https://www.mycause.com.au/events/runforstrength

All proceeds from the day go towards programs, services and research for the Muscular Dystrophy community.
