The North Carolina personal injury lawyers of Hardison & Cochran, Attorneys at Law, are once again serving as sponsors of the Muscular Dystrophy Association / Triangle Muscle Walk.
The event is set for Saturday, March 24, on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh. Registration begins at 10 a.m. The walk will kick off at 11 a.m. Lunch will be served to registered participants at noon. Local band More Rhythm will provide live music.
“We are honored to serve as sponsors of the MDA / Triangle Muscle Walk, which has become a huge success,” said North Carolina personal injury and workers’ compensation attorney Benjamin T. Cochran, the managing partner of Hardison & Cochran.
In addition to representing North Carolina accident and injury victims, the firm has a long history of community involvement. Every year, the firm sponsors a wide variety of non-profit groups and charity events.
“The MDA / Triangle Muscle Walk helps to raise funds for important research and services. It also helps to raise awareness of neuromuscular diseases,” Cochran said. “Above all, it gives hope and support to muscular dystrophy patients and their families.
“If anyone would like to see what the MDA is all about, we welcome you to join us on March 24 in downtown Raleigh.”
The MDA / Triangle Muscle Walk pays tribute to those with any of 40 muscle-damage diseases. The event is a family-oriented gathering. It provides light exercise for all involved – children, adults, grandparents, students, corporate teams and more.
The MDA’s Eastern North Carolina District organizes the event. The district’s office is located in Raleigh. It serves 18 counties with more than 1,100 residents living with a form of muscular dystrophy.
Money raised by events such as the Triangle Muscle Walk benefits these individuals. It raises funds for extensive patient service programs through MDA clinics at Duke and the University of North Carolina. The funds also support ongoing worldwide research and a week-long summer camp for children and young adults.

“We hope local companies will strongly consider serving as sponsors, organizing teams or making other charitable contributions to MDA,” Cochran said. “Every little bit helps.”
