The FSHD Global Research Foundation is proud to announce the “Muscles for Muscles” Squat Challenge will run again for 2021 across the month of May! The aim of this campaign is to drive awareness, empathy and support towards finding treatments and a cure for FSHD muscular dystrophy.
As a genetic disease, FSHD affects people of all ages, religion, sex and body type. It does not discriminate, and neither does this campaign! Muscles for Muscles encourages people of all fitness levels to partake in building their muscles for those who simply can’t. It also gives people living with this debilitating disease an opportunity to invite their friends and loved ones to compete on their behalf and raise awareness around the importance of having functional muscle and movement.
This challenge is bigger than just fundraising, it is personal to the one million people and their families living with FSHD. They need your help to find treatments and a cure. Muscles for Muscles is a fun, safe and virtual event that challenges you to squat in your way to any target you set yourself per day during the month of May – join the fun, get involved, and do something positive this year.
Donations received from this campaign will directly support our quest to find treatments and an ultimate cure for FSHD.
