Be Their Muscle: The Power of Community and Raising Money for MDA

May 20, 2024

Throughout April, Members of Burn Nation came together to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). This is the 8th year that Burn Boot Camp has partnered with MDA for the ‘Be Their Muscle’ fundraising campaign. We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve raised over $492,000 in support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association thanks to the dedication and compassion of our Members. This incredible initiative saw our dedicated community come together with a singular purpose: to make a meaningful impact in the fight against muscular dystrophy.

‘Be Their Muscle’ symbolizes the strength, solidarity, and support that define the Burn Boot Camp community. It represents our collective commitment to standing alongside those affected by muscular dystrophy, offering our strength where it’s needed most. This initiative is about empowering and uplifting others, demonstrating that together, we can overcome any challenge. By participating in ‘Be Their Muscle,’ we embody the spirit of resilience, showcasing that our community’s true power lies in our ability to unite for a greater cause.

Because of the support of Burn Nation, we’re able to help the MDA empower those living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related neuromuscular diseases. Here are just a few of the ways MDA uses these funds to help this important cause: 

Research: Funds donated to MDA accelerate the discovery of therapies and cures. The research they have supported is directly linked to approved, life-changing therapies across multiple neuromuscular diseases. There have been over 20 FDA-approved treatments for neuromuscular diseases in just the past seven years.  

Care: MDA funds the largest network of multidisciplinary clinics, providing best-in-class care at over 150 of the nation’s top medical institutions. They produce educational events and conferences for medical professionals and families. MDA also provides one-on-one support through their resource center.  

Advocacy: MDA provides access to care and therapies from day one (newborn screening), which accelerates therapeutic development, empowerment, and independence (access to education, employment, travel).

Summer Camp (Virtual & In-person): Donations to MDA help support transformative, life-changing camp experiences to thousands of children and young adults ages 8-17. Kids learn vital life skills, make life- long friendships, and gain independence and confidence at no cost to families. 

We’re so grateful for everyone who participated and donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, making ‘Be Their Muscle’ an unforgettable and life-changing experience. The generosity of our Members has not only helped raise money for MDA, but have also strengthened the bonds within our community. We’re inspired by this event to continue making a difference, both in our local communities and beyond. Together, we can achieve extraordinary things. Stay tuned for more opportunities to get involved and make an impact with Burn Boot Camp.
