Two fundraising superstars present MDA with a cheque

MDA would like to say a huge thank you to our two newest fundraising superstars Carolina & Marnie, who raised an amazing $457.13 for MD programs, services and research. We were lucky enough to have them both visit the MDA office to present us with the cheque and receive their certificates of appreciation and giftbags. The students are in Grade Six at Sophia Mundi Steiner School, Abbotsford VIC, and decided to choose MDA as their charity of choice for their class project because they have a friend affected by MD. To raise funds they ran afterschool stalls, selling a range of delicious treats like smoothies, rice pudding and sherbet. They also raffled off wonderful prize hampers. Making everything by hand, the girls showed their impressive talent and everything looked absolutely impeccable.

What a brilliant display of thoughtfulness and compassion. On behalf of everyone at MDA and the MD community, we thank you so much for taking the time to join us in the fight against Muscular Dystrophy!

Well done, from Boris M Struk - MDA Executive Director.
