Team LGDA & LMI tops $100K at 2017 MDBR
The LGDA and its research partner, Lymphatic Malformation Institute (LMI), joined together again on May 20, 2017, to take part in the Million Dollar Bike Ride to raise awareness and critical research dollars. This is the third year for Team LGDA to participate in the event.
Thanks to its dedicated supporters, Team LGDA in 2017 will award more than $100,000 directly to research studies that will help us to learn more about these rare lymphatic diseases.
In addition to its dedicated individual donors and sponsors in the United States, the Team is supported through fundraising efforts of LGDAlliance-Europe and the Alfie Milne Trust.
We wish to extend a special thanks to those who make the trip to Philadelphia to take part in the bike ride and to Dr. Max Itkin, not only for his dedication to our patients, but for giving up his Saturday to come out and ride with the Team.
To date, Team LGDA has awarded more than $360,000 for 5 pilot studies through the Million Dollar Bike Ride.
