Green Day for MDA is March 15

Each day across the country, everyday freedoms like walking, talking, laughing and hugging are being taken away from kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases. Make a difference in the lives of so many individuals living with these devastating diseases – and the families who love them – by supporting the Muscular Dystrophy Association and participating in Green Day for MDA.

Green Day for MDA will take place on Friday, March 15. Green Day for MDA is a fun way to include your members, local sponsors, companies, organizations and groups to create enthusiasm and excitement in the school and involve local communities, vendors, family and friends in support of MDA’s mission.

Since DECA is such an important part of the MDA family, MDA wanted to make sure we knew about it in case any of you would like to join. If you are interested in signing up, please see the below links to get started.

Last year, there were nearly 200 organizations and companies that took part and MDA saw some great originality that came from this special day – creative green events like potlucks, green Shamrock costumes, inspiring social media posts, and life-saving funds raised.

About MDA

MDA is leading the fight to free individuals — and the families who love them — from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life. MDA uses their collective strength to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger by finding research breakthroughs across diseases, caring for individuals from day one and empowering families with services and support in hometowns across America.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and DECA are incredibly proud of their more than 30-year partnership to empower young people to continually impact and improve their local and broader communities. To date, DECA members have raised both awareness and more than $5 million to help MDA serve the hundreds of thousands of children and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases that take away muscle strength and mobility.

In addition to offering support to local families and funding groundbreaking research across diseases, MDA’s offices across the country are also your local partners in learning the importance of being community oriented and work with local chapters and schools to make a difference in the lives of so many families.
