The Muscular Dystrophy Association to Host Virtual Events to Raise Funds for RX and Care of People with MD, ALS and Related Neuromuscular Disease

The Muscular Dystrophy Association historic fundraisers, including MDA Muscle Walk and the Harley-Davidson MDA Ride for Life, will be hosted virtually for the first time – expanding opportunities for participation while supporting social distancing and safety for the neuromuscular disease community who are at high risk for COVID-19.

“Labor Day Weekend has always been an incredibly important fundraising time for MDA and now, during the pandemic it is more critical than ever for our vulnerable community,” said Lynn O’Connor Vos, President, and CEO of MDA. “COVID-19 won’t stop us as we embrace virtual events for our MDA Muscle Walks, our long-standing Harley-Davidson Ride for Strength, our IAFF Fill the Boot program, and our fall galas. We will continue to raise awareness for muscular dystrophy, ALS, and related neuromuscular diseases so we can fund the research and care to find cures.”
