Georgia | Team Whitfield

As you may know, my mother, Lori Whitfield, suffers with Myasthenia Gravis. In April, our team walked in the MG Walk Georgia and thanks to everyone's support of walking and/or donating, Team Lori Whitfield raised over $3,000 for MG Walk Georgia 2016!!! Since 2013 with five walks and a half-marathon later, thanks to your help, in total we have raised over $13,000 for MG in support of my mom.
For the 5th consecutive year, I am once again captaining a team for the MG Walk Georgia. The 3-mile MG Walk Georgia, benefits the MGFA and for 2017 it is Saturday, March 11th at 10am, at a new venue, Brook Run Park, Dunwoody, GA. Our 2016 team was among the top fundraisers in the state and it would be great to take the #1 spot in 2017!
If you do not know, Myasthenia Gravis is an autoimmune disorder involving the muscles and the nerves that control them. People with MG produce antibodies that block muscle cells from receiving neurotransmitters, causing weakness of the voluntary muscles. This can lead to a variety of symptoms, including difficulty breathing, chewing, climbing stairs, lifting objects, talking, as well as extreme fatigue, facial paralysis, etc.
Money raised has helped us further the mission of the MGFA, and bring hope to all those living with MG. Your participation in the MG Walk over the years has made it possible to launch new support groups, new programs that connect the MG Community, educate and raise awareness in the general public and medical communities, support new research initiatives for better treatments, and so much more.
Yet as you know the fight isn't over.
I would love to have you join me in support of my mom by registering to walk with Team Whitfield and/or make a pledge to help me reach my goal!

Together We Can Make A Difference!  Thank you!
