For 36 years, retail partners nationwide have sold iconic paper shamrocks to help kids and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases live longer and grow stronger.
MDA is proud to partner with DECA for the 2018 MDA Shamrocks campaign! For every shamrock sold, DECA chapters will be helping kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS, and related diseases live longer and grow stronger.
Groundbreaking research plays a pivotal role in our mission to accelerate treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases. Each winter and summer, we award grants to researchers worldwide studying to make impacts across diseases. For our Summer 2016 Research Grants Cycle, we’re happy to announce $6.7 million in newly awarded funding. . . .
Again in 2016, MDA Summer Camps across America have given kids with muscular dystrophy and related muscle-debilitating diseases “the best week of the year!” At MDA Summer Camp, kids live beyond limits in a place where anything is possible. It’s a week where they are free to enjoy adventures like horseback riding, swimming, fishing, dancing, and even flying . . .
