The Fishing For Muscular Dystrophy (FFMD) team is based in Maryland and competes in most of the big tournaments in the Mid Atlantic and the Florida Sailfish Circuit. Paul Robertson and his sister Nicole, were both diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy and struggle as their condition progresses. Paul is the Captain of the FFMD Everglades 43, and has a dedicated crew that travels to do tournaments.
While the illness comes with mobility challenges, Paul is dedicated to not only become a victor and voice for muscular dystrophy, but also use his passion for fishing to increase research funding, awareness, and support for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). FFMD have developed fundraising activities, offshore fishing sponsorships and tournament winnings to directly collaborate with the Muscular Dystrophy Association to find a cure for neuromuscular disease while also offering funds to raise awareness and support for those currently affected by Muscular Dystrophy.
