LGMD Awareness Day – Resource Materials

The Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Day team has developed these resources to help you plan and implement your local Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Day efforts.

As individuals with Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD) we live in different geographic areas, speak different languages and observe different customs. As an ambassador for LGMD Awareness Day you are encouraged to adapt activities in accordance with your customs. Our goal is to reach the widest audience possible.    

By telling your story and sharing your experiences, you help others understand what it is like to live with LGMD. You play an important role in this global awareness campaign. Reach out to your local media reporters, including TV, radio, newspapers, online reporters and bloggers, and give them information about LGMD Awareness Day and your particular story.
