World Muscle Society “25 Challenge” to support Muscular Dystrophy Canada

Many neuromuscular specialists and members of multidisciplinary neuromuscular teams in Canada are part of the World Muscle Society (WMS). Because people living with neuromuscular conditions have been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, WMS has asked all WMS2020 Congress attendees to get involved by taking on their very own WMS25 Challenge to raise money and awareness for relevant charities across the world. Muscular Dystrophy Canada (MDC), a funder and partner of NMD4C, has been selected as the neuromuscular organization of choice for Canada.
