Martina Believes in Community and Giving Back
It is important to me to be consciously grateful for life’s blessings. As busy as life gets, I make sure to carve out time to do my part to make the world a little better for those in need. I hope, that this behaviour is contagious and creates a culture of giving. It is a beautiful life and we need to value what we have.
ALS Committee Member and fundraiser – Halton and Mississauga
As a member of the Walk to End ALS planning committee, I am a member of a passionate group that wants to make change happen. I am proud to have been one of the top fundraisers in Halton in 2019!
A diagnosis of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease gradually paralyzes people. Over time there is a loss of the ability to walk, talk, eat, swallow and eventually breathe. I am committed to helping to raise awareness and funding for this life ending disease. The efforts of ALS Canada and the local groups that help raise money mean that people living with ALS today benefit from services and support.
