Jenny named ambassador
Canada East | April 9, 2011 | By Carole Gignac
CAMPBELLTON – It takes 16 muscles to hop on one foot – and plenty more to smile like Jenny Larocque, the 2011 Hop for Muscular Dystrophy ambassador for the province.
Jenny is a Grade 1 student at Lord Beaverbrook School and the fact that she has spinal muscular atrophy does not slow her down. Jenny likes to watch the TV sitcom iCarly, play on the Wii, and she loves to play with her big brother, Shane, and her best friend, Selena. She also enjoys camping. Jenny recently joined Brownies and she is very excited about that.
On April 21, Lord Beaverbrook Elementary School will be hosting a HOP for Muscular Dystrophy event for the students. The HOP for Muscular Dystrophy is a national educational fundraising initiative. At the HOP event, children can hop, dance or move – according to their own ability – to music. Funds raised support the tens of thousands of Canadians affected by a neuromuscular disorder through research for a cure, education and services.
