IAFF and MDA: A Proud Partnership

The International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) is the largest national sponsor of the Muscular Dystrophy Association(MDA). More than 297,000 members of the IAFF in the United States and Canada are pledged to saving lives, both as fire fighters and paramedics and as the strongest campaigners for the worldwide research efforts of MDA to eradicate 40 neuromuscular diseases. The contributions of the fire fighters also go toward MDA’s summer camps for children, professional and public health education, and other programs.

As the greatest contributor to MDA, fire fighters are everywhere in the efforts of MDA to raise money. The IAFF is the biggest sponsor of MDA’s Labor Day Telethon, and it contributed a remarkable $27.6 million in year 2010 as a consequence of the overwhelming enthusiasm and contribution of tens and thousands of fire fighters and paramedics across the U.S. and Canada. IAFF members have donated nearly $450 million to MDA since 1954.
