Light It Up Green For Muscular Dystrophy Today!

Nadine Kirby, whose son David lives with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), knows that simply because a disease is “rare” does not mean it doesn’t deserve recognition. That’s why she created “Light it Up Green for Muscular Dystrophy” in 2014.

The Light It Up Green mission is to obtain city and state proclamations establishing the month of August as Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Month. Additionally, the campaign goal is to “shine a light” by illuminating state capitol buildings or city and state landmarks lime green throughout the US every year on August 4. Light it Up Green is a vehicle to increase awareness, funds for research, and therapeutic advances to enhance the lives of all those living with and affected by neuromuscular disease.
