Hello Arizona DECA!
We are so excited to share that one of our goals for this year is to continue expanding our partnership with the Muscular Dystrophy Association! The MDA has been helping families and individuals living with muscular dystrophy and other related neuromuscular diseases for the past 70 years. Throughout these years, they have worked hard to bring awareness, support, and funding in order to find a cure. This September, Arizona DECA will be joining in on the MDA National Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Month by helping raise awareness and donations for those in need.
On Saturday, September 5th, we will be participating in the MDA Virtual Muscle Walk 2020. This walk is a great way for chapters and members to learn more about the MDA while giving to an amazing cause. Since the walk is virtual, we encourage you to get active. Whether that means going out for a walk, doing yoga, hiking, or even dancing, the possibilities are endless!
If you would like to sign up for the Virtual Muscle Walk 2020, go to decalink.org/walk20, click “Register”, and register as part of the Arizona DECA team.
If you just want to make a donation, go to the Arizona DECA team link at decalink.org/mda20. Make sure to put your chapter name in the comments when making a donation. We will be giving a gift card to each of the top five chapters who raise the most. Remember that the chapter who raises the most money for the MDA overall throughout the entire year will receive special recognition at the State Career Development Conference.
We will be posting all about the MDA every Saturday in September on our Instagram @arizonadeca. We encourage you to utilize your social media accounts to spread this message far and wide. We are ecstatic to see how Arizona DECA will take our partnership with the MDA to the #NEXTLEVEL!
Yours in DECA,
Jacque Quesada | District 4 President
