Our Mission

The John Kerr Foundation is dedicated to meeting the needs of persons with Muscular Dystrophy (MD). Our objective is to directly enhance the lives of those living with Muscular Dystrophy, through the awarding of educational scholarships, providing medical and other needed equipment, organizing adventure related activities, and promoting independence and self worth.

As part of our mission, the Foundation will be launching its inaugural Life-Enhancing Summer Retreat for young adults with Muscular Dystrophy in the Summer 2013. This 5-day Retreat will provide opportunity for a group of young adults with MD a chance to learn valuable life skills while enjoying the great outdoors.

The Foundation is also a proud sponsor of the Muscular Dystrophy Adult Support Group (MDASG) Summer Retreat. This group is made up of adults with Muscular Dystrophy who once a year, come together in the foothills of the Yosemite Valley to exchange ideas and resources, and offer one another support.


A Note From John

Hello friends! Thank you for visiting our site. For those of you who don't know, I decided a few years ago to start this nonprofit foundation to raise awareness about Muscular Dystrophy, and to give back to society. I have had Muscular Dystrophy since birth and I have been extremely blessed throughout my life with the kindness of others. I am thankful to have been given numerous opportunities to succeed over the course of my lifetime. I started the foundation so that others living with Muscular Dystrophy may have a chance to experience life as I have. Thank you, John
