Your Donation Empowers Families

The iconic MDA Shamrocks pinup program is one of the nation's largest St. Patrick's Day fundraisers. What started in a local pub more than 40 years ago has since grown to thousands of retail locations nationwide and has raised more than $346 million for MDA. When you support the MDA Shamrocks campaign, you’re helping to empower people we serve to live longer, more independent lives.

Meet 2024 MDA Ambassadors

  • A picture of Ben.

    Meet Ben

    Ben’s family says that MDA has always been there for them –including on the day he was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The family loves attending local MDA events and having the opportunity to connect with other families. Ben has been able to participate in a clinical trial and his family says it has been a great experience.

    Meet Ira

    Our newest National Ambassador! Of his success, Walker says, “I always knew that I would work professionally full time and achieve my goals regardless of my disability by modifying my environment, being a good communicator, and letting people know when I needed help. I look forward to continuing to motivate myself and others by raising my voice for the MDA community!”

    Meet Leah

    Leah will continue her role for a second year as an MDA National Ambassador, alongside Ira. Leah is a dedicated advocate who feels it is important to advocate for oneself and stand up for those who are not able. As a National Ambassador, she plans to reach out to the neuromuscular disease community and their families even more extensively. She believes it is important to continue creating relationships and getting to know one another to accomplish the goals we have as a community.
