To break it down even further, your Muscle Walk donations and the funds you raise support:

  • more than 300 research projects worldwide — in fact, MDA spends $70 a minute on its research program;
  • MDA’s nationwide network of 200 clinics, including 42 MDA/ALS centers, staffed by experts in the diagnosis and medical management of muscular dystrophy and related disease;
  • 80 weeklong summer camp sessions each year, providing a barrier-free camp experience for some 3,500 children, with more than 4,300 volunteer camp counselors; and
  • MDA’s equipment program, which helps MDA families by lending durable medical equipment as needed and providing financial assistance for repairs.

MDA is listed as a ‘Top-Rated Charity’ by the American Institute of Philanthropy and has earned the right to display the Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity emblem.
