Jockeys Ramon Dominguez and Maylan Studart will be among the Metro-New York athletes participating on the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s (MDA) 2013 Muscle Team for the 16th Annual Muscle Team® Gala & Benefit Auction scheduled for 6 p.m. on Tuesday, January 8 at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan.

 

The Gala & Benefit Auction is a high-profile reception and fundraiser, offering guests the opportunity to mix and mingle with their favorite Metro-New York athletes. The annual event gathers top local athletes who have chosen to put their muscle behind the search to find a cure for neuromuscular diseases.

 

Dominguez, the two-time defending Eclipse Award winner as the nation’s most outstanding jockey, will be participating on the Muscle Team for the third time, while Studart is making her fifth appearance.

 

In addition to Dominguez and Studart, the 2013 Muscle Team includes Giants Antrel Rolle, Mathias Kiwanuka, Ramses Barden, Steve Weatherford, Michael Boley, Kevin Boothe, Chris Snee, Lawrence Tynes, Zac Deossie, and Prince Amakamura; Jets Quinton Coples, Shonn Greene, Bryan Thomas, and Nick Folk; Knick Iman Shumpert; and Net C.J. Watson.

 

Each member of the 2013 Muscle Team® will be paired with their MDA Buddy – a child from the Metro-New York area who is affected by a neuromuscular disease.

 

“We are excited to be celebrating the 16th Annual Muscle Team® Gala & Benefit Auction,” said Kaylan Scagliola, Director of Business Development, MDA. “The athletes comprising the 2013 Muscle Team® will be more exciting than ever!”

 

With the help of Metro-New York athletes putting their muscle behind the search for a cure over the past 15 years, MDA’s Muscle Team® has raised almost $12 million. MDA’s Muscle Team® is expected to exceed the $13 million mark this year as the 2013 Muscle Team® Gala & Benefit Auction is expected to raise more than $1 million for those affected by a neuromuscular disease. All of the monies raised will fund MDA’s research and program services here in Metro-New York.

 

For tickets to the 2012 Muscle Team® Gala & Benefit Auction or information about MDA’s services, please call Caity Connolly at: (212) 682-5272 or visit nymuscleteam.org.
