Now celebrating its 17th year,
MDA’s Muscle Team is a high-profile sports dinner where professional athletes join together to put their muscle behind the search to find treatments and cures for muscle diseases. Each athlete is paired with an MDA Buddy, a local child living with a muscle disease. YOU can ensure the MDA Muscle Team’s success by lending your support! The season kicks off on November 19, 2013, at the Muscle Team Kick Off at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers and culminates January 7, 2014, at the Muscle Team Gala that consists of a cocktail hour, dinner as well as a chance to bid on unique auction items and to mingle with athletes, celebrities and top business executives from the New York metropolitan area.
This year, we are pleased rename our Champion of Hope Award to the Russ Salzberg Champion of Hope Award. The award, named after FOX5/My 9 News Sports Anchor and tireless advocate for the Muscular Dystrophy Association is presented to an individual who has inspired Russ’ indefatigable commitment to MDA. The 2014 Award is presented to Roseann Michelli.
The Champion of Spirit Award is bestowed upon an individual who has demonstrated passion, drive and commitment toward making a difference in the lives of people living with muscle diseases. Christopher Savoglou is an integral part of the history and the future of the NY Muscle Team and we are thrilled to have him as the 2014 Champion of Spirit.
