The Muscles for Muscles Squat Challenge is an initiative of the FSHD Global Research Foundation which aims to build muscles for those who cant. This campaign drives awareness, empathy and support to raise vital funds for medical research for treatments and cure for FSHD muscular dystrophy.

This challenge is bigger than just fundraising, it is personal to the 1 million people and their families living with FSHD. They need your help to find treatments and a cure for FSHD.  Join our 10 day squat challenge and help make a difference today!
