The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a voluntary health agency, a dedicated partnership between scientists and concerned citizens aimed at conquering more than 40 neuromuscular diseases that affect more than a million American adults and children. The diseases in MDA''s program include nine forms of muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig''s disease), spinal muscular atrophy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, metabolic diseases of muscle, myasthenia gravis, inflammatory myopathies, CMT, SMA, and other neuromuscular conditions.

MDA combats these diseases through programs of worldwide research, comprehensive medical and community services, and far-reaching professional and public health education. The Association''s programs are funded almost entirely by individual private contributors.


Local businesses sell green shamrock mobiles for $1 donation to MDA and gold shamrock mobiles for a $5 donation to MDA.  The program runs February - March every year.
