Thousands will gather at Mall of America® in support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association
WHAT: Families from across Minnesota will come together to support Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) at Mall of America® for the MDA Muscle Walk on Saturday, May 2.
Thousands of MDA supporters will join forces to make a difference in the lives of people fighting life-threatening muscle disease in Minnesota and across the nation. Event activities include face painting, banner making and a Cross Fit demonstration.
