MDA is leading the fight to free individuals — and the families who love them — from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life. MDA uses their collective strength to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger by finding research breakthroughs across diseases, caring for individuals from day one and empowering families with services and support in hometowns across America.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and DECA are incredibly proud of their more than 30-year partnership to empower young people to continually impact and improve their local and broader communities. To date, DECA members have raised both awareness and more than $5 million to help MDA serve the hundreds of thousands of children and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases that take away muscle strength and mobility.
In addition to offering support to local families and funding groundbreaking research across diseases, MDA’s offices across the country are also your local partners in learning the importance of being community oriented and work with local chapters and schools to make a difference in the lives of so many families.FIND OUT MORE
