  Beaumont police and firefighters will help raise money Thursday for the Muscular Dystrophy Association by waiting on tables and donating their tips to the non-profit health agency.

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, muscular dystrophies are a group of more than 30 genetic diseases characterized by progressive weakness and degeneration of skeletal muscles that control movement.
Some forms of muscular dystrophy are seen in infancy or childhood, while others may not appear until middle age or later.
Services for children with muscular dystrophy are available at the Pediatric Neurology & Genetics Clinic, Loma Linda University Health Care, 2195 Club Center Drive, Suite A, in San Bernardino. Telephone (909) 558-2383.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association is dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and related diseases by funding worldwide research, according to its website. The Association also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education.
