IAFF Local 27 joins representatives from the MDA at an event to announce this year’s campaign

The MDA is a major contributor to neuromuscular disease research, treatment and innovations in care for dozens of diseases, including muscular dystrophy and ALS. These diseases attack the muscular system, taking away physical strength, independence and ultimately shortening an individual’s lifespan.

The Local 27 Seattle Fire Fighters Union and the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) have been partners for more than 60 years. Last year, the community contributed more than $20,000 in Local 27’s campaign to support the MDA. This year we hope to top that amount! We thank you for your support!
