Text For A CURE!

Hi Wings Supporters!

Guess what? You can now text MDA to 50555 to make a $10 donation and support MDA's Wings Over Wall Street as we continue to fund research to cure ALS. This is a simple, easy, and convenient way to show that you care about those who are fighting for the lives everyday. Imagine if this grassroots message got out to tens of thousands of people! You can help by passing on this information to your social network, so that, together, we truly can make a difference in the lives of those with ALS and those we can prevent from getting diagnosed in the future.

Thank you for helping us make a difference in the fight against ALS!
