Welcome to the Tampa Chapter!
Thank you for visiting the Tampa Chapter of the FSHD Society which officially launched in May 2019. We are here to build a local community of patients, family and friends, and help them connect and advocate for themselves and each other. Our hope for the future is to find a cure – Until then, we hope to bring a greater awareness to the community, and to help improve the quality of life of all those affected.
George Pollock Jr, Founder of the FSHD Cycling Team, is hosting the first annual "Targeting a Cure for FSHD" clay shooting event to raise awareness and funds for FSH Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD). This will be a great day to re-connect with friends - old and new! Join us to shoot, to eat, or just to mingle!
