8th Annual Andrew Gulch Memorial Golf Outing to Support MDA

Join the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and the Gulch family in support of the 8th Annual Andrew Gulch Memorial Golf Outing on Saturday August 18, 2018 at 11:30am as we raise funds in support of MDA.

At MDA, we are fighting to free individuals — and the families who love them — from muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases so they can live longer and grow stronger.

The Andrew Gulch Memorial Golf Outing to Benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is a tribute to our angel, Andrew. On December 31, 2001, Andrew was born and struggled to live…25 days later he passed away from unknown causes. Several years later, Andrew’s mother and older brother Nicholas were diagnosed with Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy (MMD). Feeling an immediate need to do something, the Golf Outing was designed with two goals: 1) to raise money to find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy and 2) to allow Andrew’s name to live on and be celebrated throughout the year!

The first goal has been accomplished by raising funds to benefit MDA and all of the work they do to lift up families in NW Ohio and SE Michigan. The MDA-Detroit Office, provides the MDA Clinic at the Toledo Hospital that provides doctors, therapists, and other specialized health care services to hundreds of families that are affected by the 43 diseases identified as muscular dystrophies (including ALS). In addition, MDA provides summer camps for Kids affected by muscle disease. These camps provide a fun and accessible setting where kids, many of whom are in wheelchairs, can experience what other kids take for granted, such as being free to swim or ride on a Harley Davidson motorcycle. MDA also funds research and clinical trials that provide a glimmer of hope to families that know the potential outcome of these horrible muscle diseases. The Gulch family, as well as many other Toledo-area families, have participated in many of these studies and hope, that with continued donations, a cure will someday be possible.
