For Strength, Independence and LifeJordan Hays Foundation

We’re fighting to free individuals — and the families who love them — from the harmful effects of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases so they can live longer and grow stronger.

In Support of The Muscular Dystrophy Association Our Impact

Families are at the heart of The Muscular Dystrophy Association's (MDA) mission. We wake up every morning to create more hope and answers for families living with muscular dystrophy and related diseases that take away physical strength and mobility. We do this by finding research breakthroughs across diseases, caring for kids and adults from day one and empowering families with services and support in hometowns across America.

MDA is using the money we raise to accomplish the following goals by 2020:

  • CURE: Double our research investment on drug development and clinical trials to bring more treatments and cures to families.
  • CARE: Provide care and support for 50,000 more families — a 50 percent increase over the number of families registered with MDA today.
  • CHAMPION: Fund 20,000 kids at MDA Summer Camp at no cost to families as we expand our offerings for young adults.

At MDA, we take a big-picture perspective across the full spectrum of neuromuscular diseases to uncover breakthroughs that accelerate treatments and cures. The power in our research approach is that we can often apply learnings from one disease to achieve progress in others to bring urgently needed answers to our families.
