San Diego, CA (March 14, 2012) — Travel To Go employees and families raised over $600.00 in San Diego’s MDA Muscle Walk held at the Crown Point Park, Mission Bay, CA on February 26, 2012.
Travel To Go Membership Assistance Specialist, Gloria Simpson, acted as team captain and was in charge of organizing the twelve company employees and family members. All of the members of “Team Scooter” proudly wore their Travel To Go pins and completed the 5K (3.1 miles) walk.
“It meant a lot that so many employees agreed to participate in the event, even though this involved taking some of their Sunday relaxing time. “Even those employees that could not walk, made donations” says Simpson whose sister, Dawnette, and brother, Donald, have muscular dystrophy. Simpson counts her fellow Travel To Go employees as her “extended family” and added that “people really do need to continue to be generous in supporting awareness and realize the importance of continued commitment.”
Until her family was affected, Simpson was not aware of the scope of costs involved in just meeting everyday needs. For example, it cost several hundred dollars just to replace the headlight on her sister’s scooter (hence the name Team Scooter) and it takes $800.00 for a child to attend camp. Thanks to the generosity of all that participated in the walk, over $144,000 was raised that will continue to fund the clinic, summer camp, support groups, research, equipment repairs/modifications and much more. Ms. Simpson urges everyone to visit www.mdausa.org and donate to this worthy cause.
