Thanks to our Sponsors

A vital part of MDA’s financial support comes from strong partnerships — some decades old — with national sponsors. MDA has teamed up with caring corporations, organizations and brands which each year generate tens of millions of dollars through creative campaigns, sales and year-round special events. MDA owes a tremendous debt of gratitude not only to the decision-makers who maintain these partnerships, but also to the personnel, customers and other participants involved at every level who are at the heart of MDA's fight against neuromuscular diseases.
