The 2012 Walk for Muscular Dystrophy season starts on May 5, 2012! The Walk for Muscular Dystrophy is a fully accessible event for teams of family, friends, co-workers or classmates to gather for a day of fun, fellowship, and fundraising. The Walk for Muscular Dystrophy aims to raise funds for research and services for Muscular Dystrophy Canada, but it also raises awareness and connects participants with others united by neuromuscular disorders. There is just over a month to get ready if you are participating in the Toronto Walk for Muscular Dystrophy, which is the kick off location for this year, the fifth as the National Signature Event.
The added bonus of signing up early is being eligible for the Early Bird Contest! Simply register online by the early bird date, which is at least 30 days prior to the date of your local Walk event, for your chance to be entered into the contest. You could WIN airfare for TWO to anywhere that Air Canada flies in North America, including the Caribbean!
The other important reason to sign up early is that you have more fundraising time! Fundraising is an important aspect of the Walk for Muscular Dystrophy. It can be helpful to utilize social media networks so post about why the Walk for Muscular Dystrophy is important to you on your Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+ accounts. Your enthusiasm is contagious, and by rallying your social networks you can inspire others to participate, volunteer and donate. Visit www.muscle.ca/walk to learn more and register!
