Muscular Dystrophy Association
Goals & Objectives
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.
MDA is leading the fight to free individuals — and the families who love them — from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life. We use our collective strength to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger by finding research breakthroughs across diseases, caring for individuals from day one and empowering families with services and support in hometowns across America.
