LGMD Awareness Day was founded by Carol Abraham, who has lived with LGMD since childhood.  For so many years, she wished there was more awareness of LGMD.  Through collaboration with a variety of LGMD Foundations, Carol began plans to organize the first LGMD Awareness Day which was celebrated worldwide on September 30, 2015.

LGMD Awareness Day has become an annual collaborative effort to globally raise awareness of individuals living with Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy.  The fourth annual global  “Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Day” will be held on September 30th, 2018.

Currently, the LgmdDay Planning Team consists of:
