Nicholas Mastroianni helps raise money to help children with Muscular Dystrophy attend summer camp.
Florida Regional Center executive, Nicholas Mastroianni, recently helped raise money to send children affected with Muscular Dystrophy to a specialized summer camp. The goal of the program was to give children with muscular dystrophy conditions, the same summer camp experience and opportunity as unaffected children. Nicholas Mastroianni was able raise over $3,000, which will allow up to 3 children to participate in the summer camp. Children affected by MD are often restricted to wheelchairs, as the inherited disorder involves muscle weakness and loss of muscle tissue. The camp allows the children access to camp activities, such as swimming, ATV rides, and arts and crafts, with the assistance of properly trained camp personnel and volunteers. Nicholas Mastroianni saw this as a worthy cause to donate his efforts to as the MDA is working to eradicate the disease through the employment of over 330 research projects around the world. In the interim, they also strive to make life better for those affected with the disease through support programs, medical equipment programs, free flu shots, and MDA summer camps for youngsters.
