Halos for Muscular Dystrophy~The heart beyond the "facts and definitions"

Hi everyone!

So sorry I haven't shared anything for some time. I have been very busy working on a new project that will promote called Halos for Muscular Dystrophy. I would like to welcome you each to join our online Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/HalosforMD/

*******************************************************************************

HALOS FOR MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY. The Heart beyond the "facts and definitions"


Who are we?

We are the children, their fami

lies, and the volunteers of muscular dystrophy. We have joined forces to take the world beyond the facts and definitions of MD and straight into the heart of it. As the heart of muscular dystrophy, we are sharing our stories with the people of the world to communicate how important it is to end this heart-breaking disease!

Our mission

TO CREATE A WORLD WIDE UNITY OF AWARENESS FOR MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY (MD).

RAISE FUNDING FOR THE CURE FOR ALL THE VARYING FORMS OF MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY. 

TO HONOR THOSE WE FIGHT FOR EACH DAY AND THOSE WE HAVE LOST IN THE WAR WITH MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY.

***************************************************************************

Halos will launch it's first annual worldwide event on September 14, 2013. Every hosts event will vary as they add their own special touches, but every Halos event will include the following:

Camp Halos
We spend a night "roughing it" for MD. Participants bring only a sleeping bag to our Halos event and spend the night under the stars to raise funds for the cure. Participants are sponsored by family, friends, and neighbors for their efforts. Complimentary hot chocolate for all participants will be provided by Halos.

Halos Wall of Hope
Our wall signifies our unity, displaying the individual stories of the children afflicted with MD and the families that care for them.

Warriors of MD Ceremony
We honor those slain by MD, creating a symbolic halo, with ribbons attached. The color of each ribbon will reflect one of the varying forms of MD.
********************************************************************************
If you chose to host an event for Halos for Muscular Dystrophy, you will also have the choice of which organization your money will go to. i.e. Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, Cure Duchenne, Duchenne Alliance, Muscular Dystrophy Association, etc. 

If you would be interested in hosting an event for Halos please let me or Candice Mattausch know in the Halos group.
