People living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and other related neuromuscular diseases, are robbed of the strength that most of us take for granted every day – the strength to walk, talk, laugh, hug, even breath. At MDA, we give strength to those who need it most.
Our muscle walks are celebrations of giving strength. An opportunity to recognize the members of our community -- you, supporters, caregivers, friends and family – and come together in support of our common cause.
WHY JOIN OUR FIRST MDA MUSCLE WALK Sponsored by your SGA? Several of your own LU classmates either are living with a muscle disease or have family members and friends diagnosed with one of 43 muscle diseases. So show your LU Flames hearts and spirit to serve by signing up for this 5k Muscle Walk as an individual, with a team, or create your own team. Ask others to join and support you with a donation — they'll be grateful for a fun and rewarding experience.
Your participation at an MDA Muscle Walk helps to support our mission of transforming the lives of people living with neuromuscular disease through research, treatments and care. MDA researchers have released 7 new life-changing treatments in the last 4 years and more are coming soon IF we can count on you to help! Miracles are happening with YOUR support and hearts to help our local families!!
