Armando's Run for WalkingStrong.org

DEAR FRIENDS AND FAMILY, 

AS SOME OF YOU MAY KNOW I HAVE PARTICIPATED IN NUMEROUS RACES OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS FOR MY PERSONAL ENJOYMENT. ON JANUARY 25TH 2015, I WILL RUN THE MIAMI MARATHON AND HALF MARATHON WITH NEW PURPOSE: I WILL BE RUNNING FOR THE WALKING STRONG ORGANIZATION. WALKING STRONG IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION DEDICATED TO FINDING THE CURE FOR DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY, A CAUSE THAT IS NEAR AND DEAR TO MY HEART. DUCHENNE IS THE MOST COMMON FATAL, GENETIC CHILDHOOD DISORDER, WHICH AFFECTS APPROXIMATELY 1 OUT OF EVERY 3,500 BOYS EACH YEAR WORLDWIDE. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS CAUSE VISIT WWW.WALKINGSTRONG.ORG

OUR GOAL IS TO CREATE AWARENESS AND GARNER THE MUCH NEEDED FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY WORLDWIDE.

WE AIM TO FIND WAYS TO GREATLY INFLUENCE THIS DISEASE WITH AWARENESS AND FUNDING, ULTIMATELY ENRICHING THE LIVES OF THOSE AFFLICTED AND TO HELP END DUCHENNE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS.
