AVON, Colorado ” A lunch fundraiser for a type of muscular dystrophy will be held at the Outback Steakhouse in Avon, Colorado on Nov. 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The disease, Friedrich’s ataxia, injures the peripheral nerves responsible for transmitting messages from the brain to the rest of the body. Symptoms include loss of coordination and weakness in the arms and legs and can sometimes lead to difficulty with speech and swallowing or glucose intolerance.

The $20 lunch free will benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s research on Friedrich’s ataxia.
