A brief note from the Chair of the WMFC:

Each year the WMFC has only two fundraisers.  One is for Research Month and the other is an end of year general appeal.  May 2021 is this year’s Research Month.  We are hoping to raise sufficient funds to support the ground-breaking research that the WMFC is investing in.

Thank you for contemplating making a gift to the WMFC.  All donations will be acknowledged with a note and a tax receipt.

Check out the three tabs, below, for more information on how the WMFC is supporting research into WM, for Paul’s statement about his walk, and to track Paul’s progress.

And we have breaking news:  CTV has run a story on Paul, Brukinsa’s approval, and Paul’s walk to raise research funds.  See it here!

To show your support for Paul and his walk, mark your on-line donation as “In Honour of someone”, and fill in “Paul Kitchen” as the Honoree.  He will get the message that you are cheering him on!

May 1st:  More breaking news!  In his note on his walk, Paul said “A number of WMers might choose to walk as well during the month of May.”  One of our members in Winnipeg, Elsebeth Hansen-Kriening, has matched Paul’s pledge.  She says:

“I am committing to walking 300km in 30 days in Manitoba, just like the Chair of the WMFC in New Brunswick.  Help me show the rest of Canada what we all know: those who live in the heart of the country have the biggest hearts!”

It sounds like “the race is on” —  but we all know the only winner is Research for WM.

Thank you Elsebeth, and thank you, Paul, and thank you to all of your respective supporters helping us to fund research for a cure for WM!

Those of you with Facebook and Instagram accounts can follow Elsebeth and her progress at #threehundredkilometresinthirtydays and #wmfcmayresearchfundraiser.
