Start Stretching: July 30 is Live Unlimited Run Day

On your marks, get set – live unlimited!

As MDA’s Live Unlimited summer campaign approaches its finish line, we want you at the starting line of Live Unlimited Run Day on July 30 to celebrate our collective movement forward – and to run or walk for kids and adults with muscular dystrophy.

Joining is easy.

  1. Sign up online and make a donation if you’d like
  2. Join our our Run Day Facebook Event and post a comment saying who you are and where you’ll be running
  3. Get ready to run or walk any time, anywhere on July 30

Run on July 30.
Your morning jog, daily walk around the gym track, sport practice, or neighborhood basketball game can all mean a little more on run day. Snap a picture of your run or walk and share it on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – and tag it with #LiveUnlimited and #MDAteam so we can celebrate together! Event updates and photos from around the globe will be posted on our Run Day Facebook Event in collaboration with Team Momentum, MDA’s own community of runners.

In select cities on Run Day, Team Momentum will also host group runs, providing the perfect opportunity to rally support while gathering your friends and family to join you on the pavement. If you live in Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Miami/Fort Lauderdale, San Diego, New York City, or Washington D.C., and want to join in on the run, email us at

Turn your run into a fundraiser.
If you’d like to take your Run Day running to the next level, you can set up a personal fundraising page and raise money for MDA with your run! Create your personal page here, set a fundraising goal, then spread the word.

(Note: If you’re a current Team Momentum participant and want to use your Run Day run to fundraise, no need to create a new page. Simply use your participant center to fundraise!)

Let the stretching being.
Whether you reach out to 30 people to mark the 30th, connect with athletes in your area or stride with the strength of one, you’ll be moving our mission, MDA individuals and families, and hope onward toward a future free of muscle-debilitating diseases.

Let’s go!
