MDA 2023 Honor Roll

NALC’s annual MDA Honor Roll recognizes branches for their fundraising efforts for the union’s official charity in 2023. The top spots for each of 10 branch membership size categories and the branch with the largest overall total are celebrated with an opportunity to attend a special function designated by President Renfroe.

The Honor Roll is followed by a list of reported MDA fundraising results. Next to each branch’s name is the total they raised for the year.

The total raised in 2023 was $1,129,806.80.

NALC supports MDA through…

Summer camps: Wonderful opportunities for children living with muscular dystrophy to spend time with kids who are just like them, doing activities adapted to their needs and establishing new friendships. NALC members are proud of the fundraising work we do all year long to support research to one day deliver a cure and to help make camps like these a reality. Volunteer for a summer camp near you by going here

Muscle Walks: A series of fun, non-competitive local walks held across the country, funding research and services for people with any of more than 40 muscle-damaging diseases. Muscle Walks provides an opportunity to honor adults and children with any of the more than 40 muscle diseases in MDA’s program, walk to have fun and get some light exercise, and raise funds to help MDA support research and provide vital services to families affected by neuromuscular disease.

Bowlathons: One more way NALC can show how serious we are about our long partnership with MDA. For some branches, it might have been years since they’ve done any sort of MDA fund-raising. Others may never have. An event such as a bowlathon gives branches a project they can plug right into, with a goal of increasing branch and letter carrier participation. 

Fill the Satchel: Letter carriers, in uniform and with their postal satchels, set up at various locations around the country, collecting from motorists, pedestrians, shoppers—and even from the crowds heading into sports venues.
