Crown Prince Walks in MDA Fundraiser

February 17, 2012

On Saturday February 25th, Crown Prince staff will be participating in the Long Beach/Inland Empire Muscle Walk – a fundraising event through the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Funding from the walk supports Muscular Dystrophy Association’s research, support service, and education initiatives.

About Our Team

We formed a team in the MDA Muscle Walk because we want to do something meaningful this year. We chose MDA because of all the tremendous things they do for the families they serve. We hope you’ll do the same and join our team!

Our team is a combined team: Crown Prince Seafood staff and the EC Riders (Southeast Los Angeles/San Bernardino Chapter of MDA Executive Committee [EC])

How we got involved

Denise Hines, Marketing Manager for Crown Prince and Vice President of the EC chapter we are walking with, shares how we as a company came to be involved with MDA:

Denise writes:

“My older brother Paul had Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy so I have been involved all my life.  This year will mark the 7th year since his passing.  My first event with the MDA was in 2003 when I participated in a Lock-Up event and had to raise my bail money to get out. 

Over the years many of the Crown Prince employees have participated with me in other events such as golf tournaments, Muscle Walks and Fill the Boot with local fire fighters.  The last 2 years Crown Prince has had almost 100% participation in the walk.  Employees either walked or donated to the walkers in support. “
