It takes four muscles to sit and watch television and another 12 muscles to use the remote control. For those living with muscular dystrophy, these simple tasks can be daunting, if not impossible. Muscular Dystrophy Canada provides assistance and hope for the nearly 50,000 Canadians living with a form of muscular dystrophy.
Safeway works together with Muscular Dystrophy Canada to help “make muscles move” during a month long August fundraising and awareness campaign. We also fund research to help find a cure for the over 100 types of neuromuscular disorders that fall under the umbrella of muscular dystrophy. Since 2008 $3.5 million has been raised for this important organization.
Children and adults who are living with muscular dystrophy are encouraged to apply for the Safeway Mobility Grants program through Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Hundreds of Canadians have received specialized equipment including a power wheelchair, specialized bed or a home improvement project such as a wheelchair ramp or retrofit a shower.
