Carmela’s Stand Up to Muscular Dystrophy


The 100 easy, fun exercise challenge!

Carmela is an amazing young girl who has a zest for life and an endearing, determined personality! Carmela has Muscular Dystrophy, a progressive, muscle-wasting condition.

We particularly enjoyed her regular posts on Twitter, especially The 100 easy, fun exercise challenge. Carmela shows us some great exercise ideas which could be great for other children with similar physio needs, these exercises will help to keep Carmela strong, healthy and mobile for as long as possible.

You can watch all the videos on Carmela’s Facebook Page; Carmela’s Stand Up to Muscular Dystrophy

We loved them all, but this might be our favourite, with Carmela’s dog, Tinker, joining in!
