Cookeville Boy 'Goodwill Ambassador' For MDA

The Nashville chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association has announced their 2011 Local Goodwill Ambassadors, including a five-year-old Cookeville boy. Jack McGrath is one of eight representatives of MDA Nashville from different parts of Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky. They will serve as the face of MDA and will represent the organization by visiting sponsors, participating in the local Muscle Walk and raising awareness throughout the year. Each Local Goodwill Ambassador was recognized at a ceremony hosted by the Nashville City Club last month. MDA provides a muscular dystrophy clinic at Vanderbilt Medical Center, as well as flu shots, summer camp, durable equipment repairs, and support groups to local families affected by muscle disease.  You can visit http://www.mda.org/ for more information.
