Day in the Life of a #Walk4MD Ambassador
The beginning of the day was very wet and rainy. As soon as my family and I left the driveway to make our way to the Walk for Muscular Dystrophy the sun started to shine and it just got warmer and warmer! We arrived to a vintage fire truck parked outside (as the Fire Fighters are wonderful sponsors of everything Muscular Dystrophy Canada) and a bunch of people inside the Marriot Hotel where the festivities of the day were being held. This included games for the kids, a bbq, musical entertainment and overall good times with friends and family.
Not long after I arrived, Global News arrived and swept me away for a quick interview – which I did not expect, but was maybe a good thing because it didn’t give me time to get nervous. That had been my favorite part leading up to the day – all of the interviews on CTV Atlantic and 89.9 The Wave. It was great getting to meet everybody and spreading awareness about MD. I didn’t mind being treated like a celebrity either! All joking aside, everybody I chatted with were great people.
