On behalf of all Canadians affected by neuromuscular disorders, we would like to extend a huge thank you for your determination, courage, passion and caring that you demonstrate as a volunteer with Muscular Dystrophy Canada. These values not only represent those of Muscular Dystrophy Canada and yourself, but also those of hundreds of volunteers from coast to coast who work tirelessly to improve the quality of life of those affected by neuromuscular disorders. Whether it be through fundraising to help us deliver our Mission; providing support, advocacy, education, information and networking opportunities or other areas of service; helping to raise awareness; or by helping out in one of our offices, the impact of our volunteers is more important than ever!
International Volunteer Day is celebrated on December 05, 2015. It is an international observance designated by the United Nations since 1985. It offers an opportunity for volunteer organizations and individual volunteers to make visible their contributions.
Once again, thank you for your ongoing support of those affected by neuromuscular disorders. We are one community working together to make a difference, but each of you as individuals are an important piece of the puzzle to make it all come together.
In conclusion, we wish you and your families a very happy holiday season and a prosperous 2016!
Buzz Green – Chair of the Board of Directors
