Harley-Davidson has a long relationship with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Each dollar raised and minute spent volunteering to help the children and families MDA serves have made a big impact on these young lives. To say thank you, MDA honored the Harley-Davidson community of dealerships, riders and employees at the recent MDA Clinical Conference in Arlington, Virginia.
For 38 years, dealers, H.O.G.® members, customers, suppliers and employees have been committed to helping MDA families live longer, stronger lives. The Harley-Davidson community has raised more than $103 million in support of MDA’s mission of fighting to free individuals—and the families who love them—from the harm of muscular dystrophy and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life. Fulfilling dreams of personal freedom is what we do at Harley-Davidson, and by supporting MDA, we have a part in making that happen.
Ed Moreland, Director of Government Affairs, was at the conference to accept a symbolic white research coat in recognition for Harley-Davidson's support and ongoing contributions to MDA’s research program. Harley-Davidson is one of the national partners that make MDA's work possible, and the coat serves as a symbol of Harley-Davidson's commitment to funding treatments and cures for neuromuscular diseases.
