For 70 years, the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) has been committed to transforming the lives of people living with muscular dystrophy, ALS, and related neuromuscular diseases. MDA funds groundbreaking research for promising treatments and provides families with the highest quality care from the best doctors in the country.

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 diseases.

In addition to offering support to local families and funding groundbreaking research across diseases, MDA’s DECA group is here to support you, no matter where you or your chapter is based across the country. Please reach out to us today at or at (312) 525-8396. Thank you for the incredible impact you are making as DECA leaders in your communities and nationwide.



DECA members can engage by volunteering as a MDA Summer Camp counselor and through school based fundraising activities and projects to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

MDA can also provide chapters guidance when planning community service activities and projects to benefit MDA and act as resource to members.
