(IRON RIVER, Mi)-— Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) client and local
high school graduate, Robbie Ivey, will be bringing art to life in an unique way; with his
wheelchair. The 18-year-old will be designing a unique piece of art for two families who won
the live auction prize this past September in Crystal Falls for the 2017 Toast to Life Gala. The
money raised from the art pieces and that evening are helping to raise funds for urgently
needed treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that severely
limit strength and mobility.
This fun art event will be held at Thrivent Financial parking lot from 1pm until each piece
is finished. The community is invited to enjoy partaking in this event as well as visit with MDA
representatives for information about MDA’s programs and helping kids and adults with life
threatening muscle-debilitating diseases live longer and grow stronger.
In case of bad weather, the rain location for this event will be held in the “Intermission
Area” of Angeli Foods in Iron River.
MDA is leading the fight to free individuals — and the families who love them — from
the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away
physical strength, independence and life. We use our collective strength to help kids and adults
live longer and grow stronger by finding research breakthroughs across diseases; caring for
individuals from day one; and empowering families with services and support in hometowns
