MGFA has so many fun ways to get involved and support us in our quest for a world without Myasthenia Gravis. Check them out and find out why we call it FUN-raising.

 

Join our MGFA TOGETHER WE STAND Virtual Event on October 10

A celebration of the power of community, love, and hope.

In a unique and unprecedented year of change and challenges, MGFA is responding by bringing the power of the MG community together virtually during our MGFA Together We Stand Against MG event on Saturday, October 10, 2020. We will COME TOGETHER and combine our 2020 MG Walks and fundraising efforts to highlight and recognize our Walk leaders, volunteers, and participants as part of the Together We Stand event.

 

WE NEED YOUR HELP MORE THAN EVER. Please continue your generous, impactful fundraising efforts in the coming months to help people with MG. Please go to our MGFA Together We Stand page to register a Team like you normally would, donate to a current team or participant, or make an individual donation. https://www.mgwalk.org/together-we-stand/

 

And join us for this live, first-ever multimedia broadcast experience! We’ll spotlight our amazing volunteers and support groups, those living with MG, our MG Walk participants, researchers, partners, and medical professionals who work hard to achieve progress every day across the global myasthenia gravis community. Be prepared for live interviews, video segments, volunteer recognition, interactive experiences, and exciting developments in the MG space.

 

It’s a celebration of the power of community, love, and hope around the world. Together We Stand as one community in the fight against MG.

 

Thank You For Your Generosity! We Surpassed our THIRD MATCHING Donation

MGFA is excited to announce that we have surpassed our THIRD extremely generous donation match opportunity. The latest one was over $38,000.

What does the MG Community mean to you? That is the question you’ll answer using your artistic and creative skills – and have a lot of fun creating awareness for the myasthenia community.

Introducing our MGFA Together We Stand Art Contest.

Submit a digital photo of an original piece of artwork that you created yourself (a painting, drawing, graphic design, …any medium you want) that tells us what the Myasthenia community means to you.

 

Anyone affected by myasthenia gravis can enter the contest and its open to all ages or artistic abilities. You could be a person living with MG, a care partner, family member, friend, or medical professional. And, you DON’T need any artistic experience – just get your creative juices flowing.

  • Submit a 2MG-5MG sized photo of your creative artwork before October 1, 2020 by midnight Pacific time.
  • Judges will select a first, second, and third prize winner and these artists will see their artwork featured as part of the MGFA Together We Stand broadcast event on October 10 at 12:00 Noon Eastern.
  • Check out this art gallery page. We love to show off your work to the MG Community.
  • Submit your 2MG-5MG digital photo file by sending an email to sgardner@myasthenia.org. 

Include your First and Last name, city, state, title of artwork, and short caption/summary about what the MG Community means to you.
