WHY: The MDA Shamrock program is the nation’s largest St. Patrick’s Day-themed fundraiser that supports families in every community living with muscle disease. Muscular dystrophy and other related life-threatening diseases take away people’s ability to walk, move, smile, talk and even breathe. Funds raised through 2015 shamrock donations build on decades of research progress, helping push science to its limits in the search for treatments and cures. Dollars raised also help support MDA’s life-enhancing programs such as state-of-the-art support groups and clinics, including the MDA Clinic at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne & Elkhart Clinic. They also make MDA summer camp possible so kids with muscle disease can enjoy “the best week of the year” at Camp Potawotami in South Milford.
