Thanks to the generosity of the Big Burrito Group, the RYR-1 Foundation, the only organization in the world that exists exclusively to serve the needs of and advocate for individuals with RYR-1 myopathy, will be hosting a Dinner and Screening of the "Hodgson" Documentary on Tuesday, August 27, 2019 at 7:00 pm at Mad Mex Shadyside (220 S Highland Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15206).
In addition to dinner, there will be a screening of a 20-minute documentary that the RYR-1 Foundation produced about Cody Hodgson, a former NHL star who was forced to retire due to complications from RYR-1 muscle disease. The trailer for this documentary can be found at www.ryr1.org/hodgsontrailer. All proceeds will benefit the RYR-1 Foundation to support its efforts in finding a treatment/cure for this inherited condition.
