CHICAGO, Oct. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Creative agency 50,000feet is proud to continue its partnership with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), providing brand guidance in support of the organization's mission to advance new research and therapies for neuromuscular diseases. MDA is a voluntary health agency, representing a dedicated collaboration between scientists and concerned citizens aimed at conquering the 43 neuromuscular diseases that affect more than one million Americans. MDA supports more research on these diseases than any other private-sector organization in the world, working at the forefront of gene therapy research.
During the course of the past year, 50,000feet partnered with the Chicago MDA chapter to align local communications efforts with the organization's recent rebranding initiative. "We are honored to be able to help raise the visibility of the incredible work that MDA does—whether here in Chicago or around the world," says Ken Fox, Principal at 50,000feet.
From funding research that has uncovered the genetic defects responsible for several forms of muscular dystrophy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and ALS to hosting inspiring events that include the Chicago Muscle Team, MDA empowers change by leveraging its many partnerships, 50,000feet among them. The 2016 Muscle Team will see Chicago professional athletes putting their muscle behind the search to find treatments and cures for neuromuscular diseases, taking place at Chicago's Navy Pier on October 21 and featuring cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, entertainment, live and silent auctions and much more.
"As we count down to our 2016 Muscle Team event, we're reminded of the wonderful relationships we've built, which help us continue our fight, year after year. It's because of organizations like 50,000feet that we're able to share a message of hope, raising awareness of the debilitating conditions faced by thousands as well as fundraising for treatments and cures," adds Sarah Coleman, MDA Executive Director.
MDA is leading the fight to free individuals—and the families who love them—from the harmful effects of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life. MDA helps kids and adults live longer and grow stronger by finding research breakthroughs across diseases; caring for individuals from day one; and empowering families with services and support in hometowns across America.
