In the Community
MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY CANADA
For 60 years, Muscular Dystrophy Canada has been funding leading research, searching for new therapies and ultimately working towards finding a cure. For equipment to emotional support, from advocacy to education, we are on the ground, giving support to everyday Canadians in whatever they need.
Muscular dystrophy is the name given to a group of genetic muscle disorders characterized by progressive weakness and wasting of voluntary muscles that control body movement. Children, teens and adults who live with these disorders may gradually lose the ability to do most things we take for granted, like walking or getting up from a chair. Muscular dystrophy can also lead to shortened life expectancy. There is currently no cure.
As a non-profit, our mission is to enhance the lives of Canadians living with neuromuscular disorders through support, services and research. More than that, we’re a community dedicated to providing a brighter future. In reality, we rely almost exclusively on the generosity of our donors to make this happen. That’s where you come in. Your donation will make a real difference to the present and future lives of those affected by neuromuscular disorders.

For every car sold by YNA, a $10 donation goes to MD. We sold 186 last year and our goal is to sell over 200 this year.
