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.
Applebee’s franchisees continued to be a champion in the fight against muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases once again in 2015. From their efforts in MDA’s consumer engagement campaigns, they raised over $282,000 for families in hometowns across America. Applebee’s has also been a huge supporter with MDA’s summer camps sessions, helping create independence and lifelong memories for kids living with neuromuscular disease. Thank you, Applebee’s, for helping us lead the fight to free individuals – and the families who love them – from the harmful effects of muscle-debilitating diseases so they can live longer and grow stronger.
