MDA Team Momentum: Running Strong

Every year, hundreds of endurance runners combine their passion for the sport with their passion for MDA, raising thousands of dollars for MDA. Matt Kendall (pictured above on the left), father of 5-year-old Archer who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), raised more than $50,000 when he ran the United Airlines NYC Half-Marathon with MDA Team Momentum in March. 

“We want to fund more promising trials,” Kendall says. “There is a lot of research out there that needs capital to get to the next level toward disease-modifying therapy. The opportunity is now.”

Join runners like Kendall who are supporting MDA at one of the many races where MDA Team Momentum will participate in spring 2018, including:
