Nick Hernandez is a familiar figure on campus, wheeling around from class to class with his aide Kayla Balander. Nick was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at age eight, and his diagnosis inspired him to take action to both raise money for research and educate people about the disease.
"During my last summer break," Nick said, "I was inspired to raise awareness for the disease and raise money to foster research activities." What he has done is begin a fundraising effort for the MDA Muscle Walk. Working through Ozarks' Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) organization and the Fort Smith chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), Nick hoped to raise enough money to help fund research and to send a child to Camp Aldersgate, in Little Rock.
