Standard Bank is proud to support the MDA and Shamrocks against Dystrophy. MDA is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The Association also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education. Muscular dystrophy refers to a group of genetic muscle diseases marked by progressive degeneration of voluntary muscles. MDA’s program includes nine main forms of muscular dystrophy and more than 30 other neuromuscular diseases which vary in genetic basis, age of onset, rate of progression and muscles affected.
By stopping in your neighborhood Standard Bank and purchasing a Shamrock ($1 or $5 for a Gold shamrock) you will help a little boy like 10 year old Teddy. He plays video games, collects Pokémon cards and loves to learn. Sadly Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy makes his muscles weak so he can’t run or ride a bike like other boys his age. Your Shamrock against Muscular Dystrophy purchase will provide funding to find treatment and cures for 40+ neuromuscular diseases.
Here’s Teddy with the Windy City Thunderbolts mascot, Boomer.
Stop in any of the 42 Standard Bank branches, now through March 17th, to help fight MDA with Standard Bank.
