Monthly Roundup March 2019

Let’s start off with some exciting news that all of us here at DMD Pathfinders have been eager to share!

Development Workers

DMD Pathfinders are pleased to announce that we now have two development workers employed for us, they both have Duchenne and will be job sharing.  Having development workers will allow us to do more outreach and take the strain off our CEO so he can concentrate more on strategy related tasks.

So without further ado we would like to wish a very warm welcome to Mitch and Tyran, you will all be hearing lots more from them in the coming months, they are bursting with ideas and looking forward to working with everyone.

Tyran is well known by most of you I’m sure, not least for his fundraising activities last year where he raised an amazing amount of money with Team DMD Pathinders Gib or Bust Rally!
