There are three things you can count once the leaves start turning, Thanksgiving, Halloween and the CVCDA Telethon!!

This year we weren’t entirely sure we would make it happen but thanks to our talented, dedicated Telethon committee we are scheduled to go live on November 1st. There are a few changes and much of the event will be virtual but there will still be a wonderful show so please tune in! There are so many ways you can be involved and support the work of our agency and the Telethon is an important one.

This is an exciting year for the Telethon with it being our 45th anniversary. That is 45 years of having the Comox Valley come together in support of the work of the CVCDA – that is quite an accomplishment. While this isn’t my first telethon, it will be my first with the CVCDA and I am really excited to see it come together. And for me, the best thing about telethons is watching the community come together for a cause they believe in. 45 years of continued support is a legacy that speaks for itself in how the Comox Valley values the agency and it’s something we can all be proud of.
