Our Muscle Story

The freedom to walk, to talk, to run and play. To hug, to eat. To breathe.

Each day in our community and across the country, these everyday freedoms are being taken away from kids and adults by muscular dystrophy, ALS and other debilitating diseases. At MDA, we are fighting to give these freedoms back. With your support, our collective strength will help families today living with diseases that take away muscle strength and mobility by funding research to find treatments and cures and supporting families with comprehensive clinical care services, resources and guidance.

This year's Muscle Team gala brings together "players" from all across the state to raise awareness and funds to support MDA's lifesaving mission.
