Join Us at Muscle Walk!

At MDA, families are our stars and heroes. Muscle Walk gives us the opportunity to unite around a cause that binds us together and celebrate all the stars in our lives — you, supporters, caregivers, friends and family — who make this journey possible.

Sign up for Muscle Walk as an individual or with a team, or create your own team. Ask others to join you and support you with a donation — they'll be grateful for a fun, easy way to fight back in your honor that really makes a difference.

This year, we need you to join us at MDA Muscle Walk so we can continue to enhance our support and care, offer the highest-quality programs and accelerate research efforts to bring more treatments to families faster.

 

 


 

Team of the Month - Tana's Bananas

Tana's Bananas

Tana’s Bananas have been a part of the MDA family in some shape or form since Tana’s diagnosis with FSH in 1992. FSH largely affects the facial and upper arm muscles, with possible progression to other parts of the body. Every MD story is different. Every disease is different. Every person’s experience within the same form, different. Nearly 200,000 people in America have some form of neuromuscular disorder. That’s a lot of muscles that aren’t working like they’re supposed to. The common fiber? Action and hope. To do something when you feel like there’s nothing you can do. That’s why the families who fundraise, fundraise. That’s why the people who donate, donate. To do the opposite of submit. To create a dialogue. To move forward somehow. To be a catalyst for groundbreaking research, trials and treatments.  That’s why we walk. For community. For hope. For awareness and education. To fix it.
