MDA To Run Awareness Campaign in May

http://www.als-mda.org/publications/als/als-curr.html#candidates


MDA Online Series Looking for CandidatesApplication deadline March 10

MDA’s “
ALS: Anyone’s Life Story” campaign once again will be featured on its ALS Division Web site during national ALS Awareness Month this May.

This online series introduces individuals affected by
ALS from across the nation, raising awareness of ALS by illustrating that it truly could be “Anyone’s Life Story.” MDA notifies local media whenever someone from their area is featured on the series, which often leads to additional media coverage.
A different individual will be featured each of the 31 days in May. To see those featured in 2008, visit the MDA ALS site (
www.als-mda.org), click on Resources at the top, then Anyone’s Life Story.

Potential candidates for the series include people with ALS who are public speakers, leaders within local MDA support groups and outreach efforts, or anyone living with ALS who has an inspirational outlook on life.

If you’re interested in applying, contact your
local MDA office by calling (800) 572-1717.

But hurry! The deadline for applications is March 10! Candidates must fill out a short questionnaire and provide a photo; call your local office for complete information.
