Leading hi-rel connector company, ITT Interconnect Solutions will once again sponsor a special fundraising event that sends 96 deserving youngsters who suffer from Muscular Dystrophy to summer camp.
For over 20 years the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), a voluntary health agency dedicated to fighting more than 40 neuromuscular diseases that afflict, men, women and children, has depended on Interconnect Solutions and our partners in the electronics industry to make life a little more pleasant for those they serve. The event enables children with limited mobility or who are in wheel chairs to board buses to enjoy accessible activities such as swimming, arts and crafts, and talent shows.

Lauren Kennedy, a regional coordinator for MDA, comments, “Camp is life changing for these children as it provides youngsters experiences that would otherwise not be available. It enhances their self-image and helps social and emotional development. To campers it truly is the best week of the year.”

The money to send these youngsters to MDA summer camp was raised at a dinner and auction held at the same time as the EDS show in May, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Attending the MDA fundraiser were Interconnect Solutions employees, manufacturer's representatives, distributors and suppliers.
