Courtney Oland, director of pharmacy operations at Waltz Long Term Care Pharmacy, is participating in the Annual Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Lock-Up. This fundraising event demonstrates how people affected by muscle disease often experience decreased mobility when their muscles stop working. Lock-Up participants like Courtney are “locked up” for one hour, but for people with muscular dystrophy, the loss of mobility and the limitations on freedom and independence that it can cause are for life.

MDA is leading the fight to free individuals and the families who love them from the harm of muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life. MDA helps kids and adults live longer and grow stronger by caring for individuals, empowering families and by finding research breakthroughs across diseases.
