Muscular Dystrophy Queensland – Stronger Together

February 23rd, 2018

In 1978 a group of families, concerned about the lack of assistance for their children, formed the Muscular Dystrophy Support Group. Without clinical or public recognition of the disorders, the group began the challenging process of raising awareness, fundraising for equipment and services and supporting research that might one day find a cure.

Today, they build on the dedicated efforts of these early volunteers, working in line with their mission, towards a future where neuromuscular conditions no longer limit choice and control and people with muscular dystrophy and similar neuromuscular conditions are able to make the most of opportunities and fulfill their potential to live the lives they choose.

Muscular Dystrophy Queensland (MDQ) is the only Queensland organisation dedicated to people who live with muscular dystrophy and similar conditions and their families, throughout all of their lives. As a small, specialist organisation which relies on the wonderful financial support of our donors, supporters and other stakeholders, they are able to provide some free services to our clients. We also welcome customers who wish to employ us for services under their NDIS Plan or from any other source of funding.

Offering several services at no cost to their clients, these services are funded by our generous donors, private trusts and foundations, government project funding and MDQ’s fundraising and events programs.

In 2017, the Club was proud to award Muscular Dystrophy Queensland with a $2500 grant as part of the 2017 Community Grants Program, which they have used towards their cause.
