MDA- Muscular Dystrophy Association
 
 
MDA is the World’s largest non-governmental sponsor of research seeking the causes of and effective treatments for neuromuscular diseases. MDA sponsors 400 research projects annually. This organization is funded through “Fill the Boot”, lock-ups, golf tournaments, car washes, silent auctions, and private donations. “Fill the Boot” accounts for roughly 25% of all the money raised by the Razorback Chapter of MDA which serves northwest Arkansas and northeast Oklahoma.
 
Local 2866 have worked really hard to get a city ordinance changed that allows us to solicit donations on the streets of Fayetteville. We raised roughly $30,000 every year for MDA through our “Fill the Boot” campaign.
 
The money we raise goes towards purchasing specialized medical and therapeutic care, free flu vaccinations, assistance with the purchase and repair of wheelchairs, leg braces, assistive communication devices,  support groups for individuals and family members, MDA summer camps for children, and on-going public education and up-to-date information thru MDA’s web sites, publications, videos, seminars, and media placements.
