Hello Michael!
We are DAYS away from the Lock Up on June 27th at the Union Depot and you can still make a difference!
Danny's First FishLast week at camp I got to meet Danny(pictured). Danny is a vivacious little guy to say the least! Despite what he may be facing internally with muscle disease he has the BEST spirit out of anyone I have met.
Pictured is Danny with his FIRST FISH. He was beyond the moon when he caught his first fish at camp last week and ran around telling everyone he could about the exciting news!  
As we go into the last days here, you can make a difference by getting out a round of e-mails ahead of time, or reminder emails to those you have already contacted. I created a sample email below that is already linked to your page. Just delete my messaging here above the line and send out!

Dear Friends, Family, and Co-Workers!

Summer Camp (archery).jpgI am days away from going behind bars for the Muscular Dystrophy Association! I need your help to help raise funds to fight neuromuscular disease! Please make a secure donation on my personal webpage or you can get me cash and check by Thursday June 27th. Checks can be made to the MDA.
MDA not only funds research for treatment and to find a cure, but covers the expense for clinical visits, support groups, and durable medical equipment. BUT, one of the coolest programs they help facilitate is a summer camp where kids from across the state of Minnesota can attend overnight at NO COST to them and participate in activities like any other child! Activities include: archery, paintballing, fishing, water relays, and more. This summer they even get to ZIP LINE!
MDA does not receive funding from the government or united way, they are able to fund these resources because of good hearted citizens! 
If you can make a small donation, please visit my personal page or get me a check/cash by Thursday!
Thank you!!
