The Muscular Dystrophy Research Foundation of South Africa (MDRF) was founded in 1974 by Mr and Mrs Newton Walker of Potchefstroom who, at the time, had a son affected with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. They, together with Wally Gough, Chairman of the Rotary Club of Potchefstroom and representatives of Cripple Care Association formed the Foundation. They felt there was a need to reach out to other parents and families in a similar situation and also to support research into this disease with the ultimate goal of finding a cure.

In 2016 we donated a branded gazebo which the Foundation uses when they go on outings.
