They say doing time changes you, but did you know that it can also help MDA — the Muscular Dystrophy Association — save and improve the lives of people fighting muscle disease?

Muscle disease is a critical health problem that takes away abilities like running, dancing, hugging, smiling, and even breathing. Although our Jailbirds are only "locked up" for one hour, the loss of mobility that occurs when muscles stop working — and the limitations on freedom and independence that can cause — are for life.

Become a Jailbird. Go "behind bars" with some of the most prominent business and community leaders in your area, and ask your family, friends and business contacts to make donations toward your "bail." These funds will help MDA find treatments and cures, support families with life-enhancing programs and resources, and rally communities everywhere to fight back against muscle disease.
