MDA's Annual Muscle Team Gala & Benefit Auction is a high profile reception and fundraiser, providing guests the opportunity to mix and mingle with their favorite Metro-New York athletes. This annual event gathered top athletes in the metropolitan area who have chosen to put their muscle behind the search to find a cure for neuromuscular diseases.

The 2009 Muscle Team consisted of athletes from New York Giants Justin Tuck and Jeff Feagles, New York Jets Kris Jenkins, Darrelle Revis and ex-great Mark Gastineau to retired New York Knicks John Starks and Cal Ramsey and many more. Each athlete was paired with an MDA Buddy, a local child affected by neuromuscular disease. The athletes meet their MDA Buddies at a pre-event press conference, receive awards from their Buddies at the Muscle Team Gala & Benefit Auction, and often build relationships that last long after the event.
