"The march of dimes" began in 1949 when housewives from across Canada and the United States went door to door in their own neighbourhoods seeking donations of spare change - quite literally a dime in many cases - to help in the fight to defeat polio.
That effort ultimately proved successful and Canada became the first country in the world to be declared polio free. From such humble beginnings, March of Dimes Canada was born. Today, this charitable organization provides assistance to many of the more than 4 million Canadians living with a disability, including thousands of stroke survivors.
We are grateful for the support we have received from March of Dimes Canada in our quest to cope with the ongoing effects of stroke. To show our appreciation, we participate in annual MODC campaigns to raise money for March of Dimes Canada's After Stroke program. There are currently no active campaigns, so please check back in winter 2022, when the next one begins.
Thank you. Your generosity will make a meaningful difference to many people in need throughout the greater Peterborough area and right across Canada.
A tax receipt will be issued for any donations made above $10.
