Muscular Dystrophy Association – Muscle Walk

Project Description

Muscular Dystrophy Association fights to free individuals — and the families who love them — from the harmful effects of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases. Charity Dynamics was honored to work with them during their 2016 organizational re-branding to design and build new event sites for several of their major event fundraising programs: Muscle Walk, Team Momentum, LockUp, Golf and DIY.

The new MDA Muscle Walk site is now live, and the rest of the updated sites will be rolling out over the course of 2016 & 2017
