Fishing For MD (Muscular Dystrophy), or FFMD, is a 501(c)(3) offshore fishing team that has a strategic alliance with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) whose purpose is “Fighting Muscle Disease”. Through fundraising activities, sponsorships and tournament winnings, FFMD aims to increase awareness for muscular dystrophy and related diseases that limit strength and mobility, while raising money to help MDA fund lifesaving research and support programs that will help kids and adults affected live longer and grow stronger.
“Recreational fishing is big business, generating more than $115 billion in economic output and more than 828,000 jobs. If fishing were a corporation, it would rank 51 on the Fortune 500TM list.“
“MDA is proud to partner with the Fishing for MD organization. The efforts of Paul and his team are increasing public awareness and financial support to help MDA fund research, clinical care and other services for our families. These are exciting times with new treatments and therapies in the marketplace, bringing hope to individuals living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and other related neuromuscular diseases. Fishing for MD’s work is nothing short of inspirational.“
