Again this year, Muscle Up for Matthew is teaming up with Fiesta Bee County to host a 5K and Family Fun Run. The event will begin at the Bee County Courthouse at 8:00 a.m. on September 16, 2017. We invite your
business to take part in this event and help us provide funding for the research to cure muscular dystrophy.

As you may know, Matthew Silvas, II (Baby Matt), was diagnosed with Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) in 2010. Over the past three years, we have been able to raise nearly $15,000.00 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). The Muscular Dystrophy Association is the world’s leading nonprofit health agency dedicated to finding treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy. The most recent reports indicate MDA is on the verge of finding a cure. We hope that fundraisers like ours will provide funding for the research needed to end Baby Matt’s battle with this disease.

On September 12th, Baby Matt turns 12. Most children his age suffering from DMD are wheelchair bound. Baby Matt’s doctors tell us he is one of the strongest patients they have ever seen. Baby Matt believes he is THE
strongest. Without the help of the Muscular Dystrophy Association, children like Baby Matt would not have the hope he holds in his heart.
