My time volunteering with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) was an amazing experience that I would encourage all people to take part in. You are probably familiar with their annual Labor Day telethon, and they also sponsor Bike-A-Thons, Muscle Walks, and other fundraising activities. Money raised goes to research but also funds things for children challenged by MD.
My daughter has been working with the organization for a long time; she first started working with the MDA in high school and loves working at the MDA Summer Camp. I’d been looking for an opportunity to give back to the community and she convinced me to get involved with the camp. It’s been a part of her life for the past 11 years, so I decided to sign up.
