DCS was proud to sponsor a table at the fourth annual MDA gala “Toast to Life: An Evening with Cirque,” in partnership with Fishing for MD (FFMD).
Fishing For MD (Muscular Dystrophy), or FFMD, is a 501(c)(3) offshore fishing team that has a strategic alliance with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) whose purpose is “Fighting Muscle Disease”. Through fundraising activities, sponsorships and tournament winnings, FFMD aims to increase awareness for muscular dystrophy and related diseases that limit strength and mobility, while raising money to help MDA fund lifesaving research and support programs that will help kids and adults affected live longer and grow stronger.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association, or MDA, is the pioneer and world’s largest nonprofit health agency devoted to discovering treatments and cures for the over 40 types of neuromuscular diseases such as muscular dystrophy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The organization’s efforts are made possible due to world-wide funding and research which allows MDA to provide comprehensive healthcare services and support to families and individuals affected by muscle disease; as well as promoting advocacy, fundraising, and local, national, and world-wide engagement to bring awareness to this disease.
The event raised $601,360, and we were excited to be part of such a great cause!
