ERA Justin Realty Receives Muscular Dystrophy President’s Club Honors
Rutherford: The fundraising team of ERA Justin Realty has been focused on sending kids with Muscular Dystrophy to summer camp, specifically designed for their needs and abilities. As the year winds down, accumulated totals are completed. ERA Justin Realty has received MDA President’s Club honors for their 2015 efforts.
For their efforts as one of New Jersey’s top fundraising real estate offices, Ron Darby Broker and his MDA fundraising teammates were notified that the firm qualified for the MDA President’s Club, honors shared only by organizations with year-long focus and fundraising for the Summer Camp For Kids program.
Each year MDA supports some 90 summer camps across the country. Whether in Alaska or Hawaii, in California or New Jersey, at MDA camp barriers simply don’t exist. A child with a disability can just be a child among friends. MDA camp is a magical place offering a wide range of activities specially designed for young people who have limited mobility or use wheelchairs. MDA camp programs, although structured, are conducted in a relaxed atmosphere that gives campers an unmatched opportunity to develop lifelong friendships, share interests and build self-confidence. Activities range from outdoor sports such as swimming, boating, baseball and horseback riding to less physically demanding programs like arts and crafts and talent shows. Thousands of youngsters attend MDA camp each year at no cost to their families.
If you’re 16 or older, you’re invited to apply to join the MDA team as a camp volunteer. At most MDA camps, volunteer counselors work one-on-one with campers around the clock, providing the care, close supervision and attention children with neuromuscular diseases need. Counselors push wheelchairs, lift and carry youngsters, and even “bunk down” near their campers. But above all, they become a youngsters friend for a week and sometimes for a lifetime.
By becoming an MDA summer camp sponsor you can provide a local youngster with neuromuscular disease with many special summer memories. The cost of sending one child to MDA camp for one week is $800.00.
As a sponsor, you will be invited to visit the local MDA camp during our special sponsor VIP Day. You’ll see the joy that your participation in this program creates.
Darby continued, “Become a sponsor! Help youngsters with neuromuscular diseases in your community experience a week of fun and friendship they’ll never forget. At MDA camp there’s always a need for volunteer counselors, medical staff, water safety instructors and activity coordinators. Be a volunteer or a sponsor by sending your tax deductible check made payable to MDA and mail it to MDA c/o ERA Justin Realty Co., 118 Jackson Avenue, Rutherford, New Jersey 07070. If you have questions on this great program for the kids, call us at (201) 939-7500.”
