About

On February 28 th, 2018, we will be hosting an event called the Alexander City 2018 Executive Lock Up. The event is held to cover the cost of summer camp for children with muscle disease. Business and community leaders volunteer to "go behind bars" as part of MDA’s Lock-Up event. During the event, participants - "Jailbirds" - will be locked up for one hour as they attempt to raise "bail" by encouraging friends, family, and co-workers to contribute to directly benefit MDA families in the Alexander City area. MDA’s Lock-Up theme helps illustrate what a serious problem neuromuscular disease is and why we need to do something about it now. Jailbirds only lose their freedom for one hour, but for children and adults fighting muscle disease, the loss of mobility and the challenges that result when muscles stop working are progressive and permanent. It is thanks to the support from our Lock-Up participants and generosity from community members that we will raise critical funds and awareness to help families who live with these debilitating effects live stronger, longer lives. MDA will use the donation to help raise additional funds to support MDA’s life-enhancing programs such as state-of-the-art support groups and clinics. They also make MDA summer camp possible so kids with muscle disease can enjoy "the best week of the year" at Camp ASCCA.

We are currently looking for 10 volunteers to assist us at the event. Volunteers can assist with check in/out, taking photos, prize table, greeter, mailroom, etc. I have also attached the volunteer recruitment flyer to give your more of an idea of what to expect.
