From the Desk

A message from MDA's Executive Director...

What an amazing event this year’s MDA Run for Strength was on Sunday! I would have to say it was our most enjoyable fun run held to date with a crowd of more than 1,000 people and so far we have raised close to $30,000. The weather was perfect with bright sunny skies and the crowd was in fantastic form with an abundance of happy smiling faces and laughs shared.

There were hundreds of superheroes zooming along the track and it was great to see so many of our MD community taking part. You can check out some of the event photos on our Facebook page here... [CONTINUES]

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.

Well done! MDA passed the ISO 9001 Audit with 100% compliance

Muscular Dystrophy Australia (MDA) has just passed its recent ISO 9001 Audit with 100% compliance and the organisation’s Executive Director, Boris M Struk, says he could not be more proud of the achievement.

“Receiving the accreditation in 2013 was a wonderful accomplishment and placed MDA in a superior position in comparison to many other not-for-profit organisations. Now knowing that two years down the track we have maintained the sophisticated systems and high level of service since day one, it is a true testament to the dedicated work of MDA,” said Mr Struk.

An ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS) offers a comprehensive framework on which to build processes that help ensure key business objectives are achieved and the standard has received widespread international recognition. Mr Struk credits the outstanding result to the diligence and commitment by staff to uphold the stringent procedures in place to ensure it meets audit requirements all year round.
