Clayton High School DECA Raise Money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association
Posted on 01/17/2017

Clayton High School’s DECA chapter has raised a total of $2,000.00 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).  On Thursday, January 12 the chapter officers presented a check to Amber Toy, Family Care Specialist for MDA Eastern Carolina.

The community service effort started last March when the chapter raised $300.00 for MDA by selling shamrocks during their annual MDA campaign. This school year, members and faculty participated in several activities to raise funds which included, participating in the Muscle Walk, a wristband sale, conducting a Miracle Minute, a bowling tournament, and Zaxby’s teacher lunches.  Additionally, the chapter got other students at Clayton High School involved by conducting a “Fill the Stocking for MDA” project in which classes collected art supplies for children to use at the MDA camp this summer.

DECA, “An Association for Marketing Students,” has been a long-time supporter and partner of the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Together, MDA and DECA have worked to:

  • Help fund research to find treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy and other debilitating muscle diseases.

  • Help meet the special needs of young people and adults who suffer from debilitating muscle diseases.

  • Utilize community service as a dynamic learning opportunity that supports classroom teaching, student achievement - and overall college and career readiness.
