NEW YORK, Aug. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Muscular Dystrophy Association today announced YouTube gaming sensation JeromeASF will host a charity livestream of his popular YouTube Channel to benefit the organization.

"I remember MDA from growing up watching the telethon and it's so incredible for me to be able to use my platform to continue that fundraising effort in the gaming community," said JeromeASF. "I can't wait to introduce a new audience to the work of MDA with this charity stream and be part of the mission to transform the lives of people living with neuromuscular diseases," he continued.
"Building the MDA Let's Play gaming community has been critical to raising awareness for the diseases we cover to a much broader audience and it's allowed our families a great way to stay connected, even in a pandemic, from which our patients are at the highest risk," said Lynn O'Connor Vos, President and CEO of MDA. "We're all so excited to welcome JeromeASF into the MDA family to meet our gaming community and join the progress we're making through fundraising, bringing treatments and care to hundreds of thousands of families across the country who rely on our support," she added.
