On February 9, 2017, our life was turned upside down when our youngest son Fritz, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. What started out as an MDA Walk team, quickly progressed into something greater. As we digested such devastating news and found ourselves feeling weak and helpless at what this meant for our son; our community came alongside us and gave us strength. It was in that difficult time we realized that ‘Strength Is More Than Muscle.’ Our community gave us strength through their kind words, prayers, hugs, hot meals, and extreme generosity. We knew that even though Fritz’s muscles would not be strong, that doesn’t mean that we, our family with the help of our community, could be a source of strength, because we truly do believe STRENGTH IS MORE THAN MUSCLE.

Our Goal:

  • To raise awareness

  • To raise money for research

  • To teach and share strength
