The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is a voluntary health agency -- a dedicated partnership between scientists and concerned citizens aimed at conquering neuromuscular diseases that affect more than a million Americans.

MDA combats neuromuscular diseases through programs of worldwide research, comprehensive medical and community services, and far-reaching professional and public health education.

Since its earliest days it has been energized by its number-one volunteer and national chairman, entertainer Jerry Lewis.

The Association's programs are funded almost entirely by individual private contributors. MDA seeks no government grants, United Way funding or fees from those it serves.

KBTX Media also participates in the annual Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon -- a 21½-hour, star-studded variety show that simultaneously entertains, informs and raises funds for the service and research programs of the MDA.
