ABOUT THE MDA MUSCLE WALK
The MDA Muscle Walk is the largest walk event funding research and services for people battling one of more than 40 muscle damaging neuromuscular diseases. We all have different reasons for walking in the MDA Muscle Walk. Some of us are walking for a friend or a loved one. Some of us are walking to help support an MDA Clinic or Summer Camp. Others are simply walking to put a smile on someone’s face. No matter what your story is, it’s important that you walk!
