Fund Raising for Maui Kids with Muscular Dystrophy

South Maui Real Estate Specialists

By Mark ​Harbison

Do you want to make a difference for children in the Maui community who are struggling with muscular dystrophy? That's what we are doing. Mark Harbison has entered a fund raising program with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Here is how it works:

Mark is going behind bars at the Kihei Lockup on November 17th, and he's relying on friends like you to raise money for his bail. Don't worry, his incarceration is voluntary, and all funds raised will go to the MDA to benefit kids on Maui who are afflicted by the disease. That's how it works. Mark is going behind bars for "good."

Lock Up fundraisers for muscular dystrophy are taking place all over the country, and have met with great success. The money raised will help in several ways. Some of it will go to clinics that provide expert, specialized medical care, some will go to research towards better treatments and finding a cure, some will be used to provide general support, such as helping to obtain equipment, and lastly, some of it will go to a kid's summer camp that provides a week of fun and friendship for kids who are affected by muscular dystrophy.

For those of you who aren't familiar with muscular dystrophy, it is a genetic disorder that weakens the muscles that make the body move. Gaps in their genes prevent them from producing the proper proteins they need for healthy muscles. Some kids lose their ability to walk, or even sit up.

If you'd like to learn more about how to help Mark make bail and support the wonderful keiki of Maui who have been struck by this tragic disorder, click this link.


As always, we'd like to invite those searching for Maui real estate to browse our website's listings, or use our contact information at the bottom of the page if you need assistance. This week, we recommend a look at condos in Maalaea and homes in Wailea.
