About MDA
The Muscular Dystrophy Association is the world’s leading nonprofit health agency dedicated to saving and improving the lives of people with muscle disease, including muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neuromuscular diseases. It does so by funding worldwide research to find treatments and cures; by providing comprehensive health care services and support to MDA families nationwide; and by rallying communities to fight back through advocacy, fundraising and local engagement.

In our region, 8,000 clients receive services at the Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children, JFK, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Hershey Medical Center, Geisinger Medical Center, Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, the MDA/ALS Center at University Medical Center in Pittsburgh, Johns Hopkins University, University of Virginia, University of Maryland, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Hahnemann University Hospital (ALS clinic), Northshore Neurosciences and University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (General & ALS Clinic).

Since 1988, Ride for Life has raised nearly $19 million for MDA with over 50,000 participants. All of the money raised stays in a seven state area to help support MDA’s life-enhancing programs such as state-of-the-art support groups and clinics, and make MDA summer camp possible so kids with muscle disease can enjoy “the best week of the year.”
