60 Years of Progress

September is Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Month, and many of the over 150 different neuromuscular disorders that fall under our umbrella also have individual Awareness Days during this month.

The work of Muscular Dystrophy Canada begins with helping people live their daily lives to the fullest, and ends with one day finding a cure. We are proud of our history of serving Canadians affected by neuromuscular disorders, their families, and their community. We have been funding leading-edge research, searching for new therapies and medical advances that have helped Canadians affected live longer, more enriched lives.

2014 marked 60 years since Muscular Dystrophy Canada was officially registered on September 27, 1954 and founded by Dr. David Green and Arthur Minden. We’ve shared some of that progress, and highlighted the accomplishments in this space commemorating those 60 years with stories, facts, photos and other media of our milestones, our supporters and the communities who journeyed with us.
