Do It For Dystonia

Submitted by archana on October 15, 2019 - 1:26pm

We are pleased to announce our year-end virtual Fundraising Campaign: As we approach the end of the year, we want to show the community-at-large how your talents are helping others. This campaign also gives you a chance to fundraise for dystonia support programs, awareness campaigns and research. 

About The Campaign: 

The spirit of this campaign is to empower people to put their passions, skills, and talents on display in order to raise funds for dystonia. We want to celebrate how individuals with dystonia succeed in all aspects of life.

Our vision is two-fold:

First, we want to encourage members of the dystonia community to showcase their unique talents, passions and skills for the purpose of raising much-needed funds for dystonia.

Second, we hope to highlight how people with dystonia both survive and thrive with this lesser-known movement disorder.

How To Participate:

Perhaps you’re a master baker who is passionate about the culinary arts. Or maybe you’re a fashionista who knows how to make others look and feel like their best selves. Whatever your talents or interests might be, DMRF Canada would be delighted to see those talents featured on a virtual fundraising page. Not only will you share your passions, skills, and talents with the community, you will make a valuable contribution towards raising funds for an important cause.
