MDA receives grant from Merkley Charitable Trust

FLINT — The Greater Michigan Muscular Dystrophy Association recently accepted a $2,000 grant from the Martha Merkley Charitable Trust administered by FirstMerit PrivateBank for its 2016 MDA Summer Camp Program. At MDA camp, kids with neuromuscular disease discover a world created specifically for them, and meet many other kids sharing the same needs and experiences. Our 2016 Camp is going to be held from June 12-17 at the Sherman Lakes YMCA camp in Augusta. MDA camp offers a fun and safe outdoor experience, along with opportunities to engage in a variety of activities such as horseback riding, swimming, adaptive sports, arts and crafts, camp dances and much more. In addition to all of the fun and friendship it offers, MDA camp enables campers to stretch their comfort zones and grow in independence as they spend a week away from home; permit someone other than their parents to provide personal care; and make new friends. – G.G.
