Contractors Association of West Virginia

Award PhotoAid to Children with Muscular Dystrophy Contractors Association of West Virginia constructed a driveway for a local family whose two children suffer from muscular dystrophy. The family’s home sits on a hillside, and the long, steep gravel driveway proved difficult to manage in a wheelchair. The chapter’s work, which was requested by the Muscular Dystrophy Association of West Virginia, allows the children to reach the school bus and neighborhood activities, increasing their mobility and quality of life.
