“I like to help people, and I like to solve problems. It's an amazing feeling when you see so many in the Charlotte community share that passion by coming together at an event like Muscle Team to raise funds to help support those living with muscle disease.”
Funds raised at the event directly benefit local families in the Charlotte area served by MDA. For more information about the Charlotte Muscle Team, visit charlottemuscleteam.com.
MDA is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to finding treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases today affecting more than 1 million Americans. It does so by funding research, providing comprehensive health care and support services, and through advocacy and education.
In addition to funding more than 250 research projects worldwide, MDA maintains a national network of 200 medical clinics; facilitates support groups for families affected by neuromuscular diseases; and provides local summer camp opportunities for thousands of youngsters with progressive muscle diseases.
