Through finding research breakthroughs, providing care and empowering families with services and support, MDA fights to free individuals and their families from the harmful effects of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases so they can live longer and grow stronger. After losing a valued teammate, MDA’s cause became especially important to the Induron family. We’re proud to play a part in the fight against muscular diseases in honor of Induron teammate, Steve Watts (1954-2010).
Steve worked for Induron from July ‘79 until July ‘09 in a number of different positions, including Customer Service and Purchasing Manager. He died as a result of Lou Gehrig’s disease in August of 2010. We still miss him, but are blessed to have the opportunity to remember him in this way…a cause that might help make the struggle a little less for others.
Presented by Medical Properties Trust, the inaugural MDA Toast to Strength Gala will occur on Thursday, Oct. 13 at Regions Field in Birmingham, AL. The gala will feature fine food and beverages, live and silent auctions, enjoyable entertainment and meaningful moments with local MDA families, friends and Birmingham business leaders. Specifically, Induron is sponsoring the event’s Wine Pull attraction. Every guest who participates in the Wine Pull will receive a bottle of wine along with a commemorative MDA Toast to Strength Bottle Stopper!
