Muscle Team® is about strength - the strength of a community united to end muscular dystrophy, the strength it takes to battle a muscle disease, particularly as a child, and the strength that happens when athletes, sponsors, and MDA families come together to fight back. One team, one dream, a cure.

Muscle Team® is a sports-oriented fundraising dinner event. Over 400 guests are expected to attend this year's event, representing Boston's commercial real estate, construction, legal, and financial communities. The event includes a VIP reception with athletes, a cocktail reception with live & silent auctions, a seated dinner program that features an on-stage awards ceremony for MDA's Muscle Team® and a live camp sponsorship auction.

Past auction items have included autographed sports memorabilia, vacation getaways across the country and to the Caribbean, tickets to sporting events, high-end gift baskets, and restaurant gift certificates. See the auction item page for a listing of this year's highlights!

Muscle Team® each year honors a group of exceptional local children, a diverse representation of MDA families across the state who have been nominated for recognition at the event by fellow families and MDA staff members. These children serve as buddies, and are always excited to be recognized at the event for the extraordinary work they do year-round fundraising and advocating for MDA.

Last year's event raised a net total of $328,129 for MDA's local programs and services. Monies raised support hospital clinics, research teams, public health education, equipment loan closets, and summer camps for kids. Participating in the event gives you the opportunity to inspire and give hope to a child fighting a difficult diagnosis of muscular dystrophy or another form of muscle disease.

YOU can ensure the MDA Muscle Team's success by lending your support!
