Just come to any Chicagoland Jiffy Lube location and add a Shamrock to your service. It will be proudly displayed on the wall for all to see! Every dollar raised goes directly to the MDA to fund programs and research!
Chicagoland Jiffy lube has joined thousands of businesses that Participate in the MDA Shamrock Tradition to help families fighting muscle disease nationwide!
Chicagoland Jiffy Lube is excited to participate in this program that is designed to help raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The MDA conducts research and offers programs that save and improve the lives of people fighting muscle disease. By participating in the annual MDA Shamrock program, the largest St. Patrick’s Day philanthropic event of its kind, you will play a critical role in the program’s success.
For over 35 years, the Shamrock program has raised more than $300 million for MDA. Locally, shamrock sales will help send local kids to MDA Summer Camp. The camp provides an opportunity for kids with limited muscle strength and mobility to enjoy fun outdoor activities, to build confidence, and to grow in independence.
Every paper shamrock you see on the walls and windows of your local Chicagoland Jiffy Lube this spring will help bring strength and urgently-needed progress to children and adults affected by muscular dystrophy and related life-threatening diseases. Donations made at the point of sale will help MDA provide the families it serves with access to top clinical care, life-changing summer camps, support programs, groundbreaking research and much more — all focused on helping them get stronger and live longer.
Your Chicagoland Jiffy Lube locations have joined with numerous local grocery, home improvement and convenience stores, as well as restaurants participating in the MDA Shamrock program. Customers and employees can help accelerate progress for people whose abilities to move are compromised — including everyday abilities like walking, running, hugging, talking and even breathing — by adding a paper shamrock to their purchase at check-out for just a $1, $5 or a larger contribution. Each shamrock is then signed by the customer and prominently displayed in each service center.
Dollars raised from the Shamrock program help MDA push science to its limits in the search for treatments and cures and support MDA’s life-enhancing programs such as state-of-the-art support groups and clinics. They also make MDA summer camp possible so kids with muscle disease can enjoy “the best week of the year” at nearly 80 locations nationwide.
The MDA is leading the fight to free individuals and the families, from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases. These afflictions take away physical strength, independence and quality of life. The MDA uses their collective strength to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger by finding research breakthroughs across diseases; caring for individuals from day one; and empowering families with services and support in hometowns across America.
Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a group of more than 30 inherited diseases. They all cause some form of muscle weakness and muscle loss. Many forms of MD appear in infancy or childhood. Others may not appear until middle age or later. The different types can vary in whom they affect, which muscles they affect, and what the symptoms are. All forms of MD grow worse as the person’s muscles get weaker. Unfortunately, most people with MD eventually lose the ability to walk.
Sadly, there is no cure for muscular dystrophy although treatments can help with the symptoms and prevent complications. They include physical and speech therapy, orthopedic devices, surgery, and medications. Some people with MD have mild cases that worsen slowly, while other cases are disabling and severe.
MDA uses every dollar raised to ensure it has the greatest impact in the fight to end muscular dystrophy. The MDA strives to provide you with transparency and clarity around how contributions make a difference and how MDA is supporting your community. You can get more information about the Shamrock program, the MDA’s mission and learn about other ways you can help at MDA.org.
