It’s time for MDA Shamrocks!

Now through St. Patrick’s Day, when you buy a shamrock, you’ll help send a local child with neuromuscular disease to summer camp.

MDA’s summer camp is an exciting opportunity for Utah’s kids.  MDA Summer Camp offers a fun and safe outdoor experience, along with opportunities to engage in a variety of activities such as adaptive sports, arts and crafts, camp dances and much more. In addition to all of the fun and friendship it offers, MDA Summer Camp enables campers to stretch their comfort zones and grow in independence as they spend a week away from home and permit someone other than their parents to provide personal care. Sure, there’s an abundance of fun and games at camp, but if you talk to MDA campers, they’ll tell you the real benefits come in a much subtler form — the lifelong friendships, the increased self-esteem and confidence, and the chance to spend at least one week of the year in a place where physical disabilities are the norm rather than the exception.

When you purchase a shamrock icon, you’ll be helping Utah children with muscle disease go to summer camp.

Donate now through March 17.
