Imagine a world where no one needs a wheelchair because there are cures for diseases that weaken muscles. Imagine a world where there is no ALS — where no one loses their ability to talk, walk, hug or breathe. Imagine a world where parents never have to worry that muscle disease will prevent their child from living into adulthood.
Muscle diseases progressively weaken muscles, often taking away everyday abilities like running, walking, hugging and even breathing.
Companies across the country are helping MDA work tirelessly to accelerate muscle health by finding treatments and cures and supporting families today with critical resources.
MDA is proud to work with incredible partners and local businesses to build stronger communities and uncover urgent answers for families who are desperately counting on us. Select a partner from the drop-down menu below, or choose a category of support.
This year, long-standing MDA partner Dutch Bros. lived up to its mission of “Making a Difference, One Cup at a Time” on May 1 by raising a nine-year record of $506,658 during this year’s “Drink One for Dane” Day. More than 240 Dutch Bros. locations in seven states participated by donating proceeds to MDA in honor of co-founder Dane Boersma, who passed away from ALS in 2009.
