The Muscular Dystrophy Association is offering an exclusive opportunity to those who want to participate in the sold out 2015 Bank of America Chicago and Marine Corps Marathons. The MDA is offering a secure, guaranteed entry by signing up through MDA Team Momentum, the organization’s nationwide endurance program. Space, however, is limited.
The program includes world-class training developed and customized for all abilities and levels, as well as a community comprised of teammates, coaches, volunteers, and mentors to help support the effort. To learn more visit MDAteam.org and sign up.
“With Team Momentum, you’ll map your course, finish your race and achieve your own personal victory. It’ll change your life; even better, it’ll change the lives of kids and adults fighting neuromuscular disease. Members train, endure, and triumph together, all while raising critical funds and awareness for MDA families,” said the MDA’s National Director of Endurance Alison Tibbits.
MDA Team Momentum is recruiting participants for other marathon events that will take place across the country. Click here to learn more about each event.
The next MDA Team Momentum Signature Events include the Bank of America Chicago Marathon (Sunday, Oct. 11), the Rock ‘N’ Roll Denver — premiere event (Sunday, Oct. 18), the Marine Corps Marathon – Washington, D.C. (Sunday, Oct. 25) and the Dallas Marathon, Half Marathon and Berhinger Relay (Sunday, Dec. 13).
The MDA Team Momentum is a nationwide endurance program committed to giving beginner and endurance pros alike the chance to participate in an endurance race, half-marathon or marathon, and then pledge their efforts to the quest against muscular dystrophy, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and other related life-threatening diseases that dramatically limit patients’ strength and mobility.
Every single mile logged and each dollar raised will support the MDA in helping to discover treatments and cures for those affected by these debilitating diseases through supporting life-enhancing programs such as support groups and clinics. MDA fundraising also allows families to send their children to the MDA summer camp so children can engage in a stimulating social environment with other children.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) has begun another season of its well known summer camp, marking its 60th year in operation. The MDA summer camp aims to support families by hosting thousands of children struggling against muscular dystrophy and similar conditions that seriously limit their mobility and muscular strength. The summer camp assists kids in helping them build self-confidence by offering them independence and freedom with no cost to families. Camp season started on May 26 with the opening in Roach, MO of the first camp and will proceed until the last days of August. Over 3,500 kids are expected in almost 75 camps across the country.
