Cousins Subs & MDA join forces to help send kids to summer camp

Four Cousins Subs Valley locations, including one in north Scottsdale, will raise money to help the Muscular Dystrophy Association save and improve the lives of kids fighting muscular dystrophy and related life-threatening diseases by participating in the MDA Summer Camp Mobile Program.


From July 13 to Aug. 10, Cousins Subs will sell $1 and $5 pin-up mobiles to help send local children affected by neuromuscular diseases to a week where anything is possible at MDA summer camp— at no cost to their families.

Each guest who purchases a mobile will receive a coupon for $1 off their next Cousins Subs order.

“We are proud to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association in their mission to create a healthier tomorrow for children fighting muscular dystrophy,” said Cliff Jones, Phoenix area developer at Cousins Subs.

“We invite all community members to stop into their local Cousins Subs to join us in supporting this important cause.”

This year marks the 60th anniversary of MDA’s summer camp program and the second year Cousins Subs has supported MDA through its mobile fundraising programs. Cousins has raised more than $3,000 to help accelerate urgently needed progress for people whose abilities to move are compromised — including everyday abilities like walking, running, hugging, talking and even breathing.

“MDA summer camp is often considered ‘the best week of the year’ for our kids, and it wouldn’t be possible without support from partners like Cousins Subs and its generous customers and employees,” said MDA Fundraiser Shannon Sabatini.

In addition to giving kids with muscle disease a week of awesome adventures, dollars raised from the mobile program help MDA push science to its limits in the search for cutting-edge treatments and cures, and support MDA’s life-enhancing programs such as its state-of-the-art clinics, including the MDA Clinic at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Barrows Neurological Institute.

Among the participating stores: The Cousins Subs at 10240 N. 90th St., Scottsdale.
