Help support a GO FAR family at the Miles for Matthew 5K/10K at 8:30 a.m. Oct. 8 at Lindley Elementary, 2700 Camden Road, Greensboro. All proceeds from this event benefit Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy to help fund treatment research for boys living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. 

“It is a 5K/10K run in historic Lindley Park that welcomes people of all ages and abilities to run or walk for those who cannot,” said organizer Allison Greiner. 

Greiner started this event with her family eight years ago after her son Matthew, 10, was diagnosed with the disorder. 

Her son Owen, 12, participated in GO FAR and Mackenzie, 7, is now in the program at Lindley Elementary. Though Matthew cannot run in GO FAR, his peers support him through Miles for Matthew, Greiner said.

“We love the idea of kids running for kids,” she said. “This is a powerful image for adults and a great message for our children. Their abilities can be used to support other children with disabilities.”
