Walk for Muscular Dystrophy Grand Total Three Times the Amount Aimed For

The David J. Hopkins Walk fundraiser completely surpassed their goal.

Karyn Hopkins, David’s sister was the organizer for the walk this year.

All in all, she says the walk was a huge success.

Many residents from Goose Bay participated, including children.

Prizes were given as incentives for those who raised the most money.

Hopkins says they set a goal for themselves this year for how much money they wanted to raise.

Their goal was $7, 500 and the group nearly tripled that amount.

A grand total of $20, 831.70 was raised for Muscular Dystrophy awareness and research.

Hopkins is very pleased to have raised that much money for Muscular Dystrophy.

Her brother David passed away from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in February.

The event is named after him.
