The councils of the Town of Carberry and Municipality North Cypress-Langford passed resolutions at their August meetings proclaiming September as Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Month across Canada. 
The purpose of Awareness Month is to increase public knowledge of neuromuscular disorders, the impact on families living with these disorders and the communities in which they live, as well as to educate the public about our organization and the services we provide. 
Since 1954, Muscular Dystrophy Canada has been committed to improving the quality of life for Canadians with neuromuscular disorders.  We strive to ensure that people with neuromuscular disorders lead full and engaged lives through the provision of programs and services that increase mobility and encourage independence, and the funding of leading research for the discovery of therapies and cures.
