Sno-Do blazes trails for a better world!
Start your engines!
When the mercury plunges, the excitement heats up. Sno-Do (pronounced "snow dough") is a Junior Civitan fund-raising, cross-country snowmobile event held annually in Ontario, Canada. Each participant solicits pledges prior to the expedition, and more than 30 Junior Civitan leaders from the United States and Canada make the journey. All proceeds benefit people with developmental disabilities.
Support the cause
Junior Civitan assists the Civitan International Foundation with its efforts to raise money for the Civitan International Research Center. The Center is a facility that researches the causes of developmental disabilities and provides clinical services and programs for those individuals in need.
The Center has gained enthusiastic acceptance from both the scientific and academic communities and now has more than 300 scientists, clinicians, students, interns, residents, fellows, and staff from across the United States and from around the world representing 40 specialty areas.
The Center researches include all forms of developmental disabilities, includng but not limited to cerebral palsy, fetal alcohol syndrome, Tay-Sachs disease, and spina bifida.
Civitans and healthcare professionals in your area refer to the Center individuals from your community who need assistance. In this way, the Center's research and accomplishments in numerous fields of healthcare offer help and hope to people in your community and worldwide.
North of the border
Sno-Do is usually scheduled for late January / early February in Barrie, Ontario. This year's excursion will again be sponsored by Junior and adult Civitan clubs of the Canadian West District and the Sno-Voyageur Snowmobile Club of Barrie. Annually Junior Civitans hope to raise more than thousands to benefit the Civitan Center's Family Assessment Department, a specialized research and diagnostic facility dedicated to addressing the healthcare issues of those with developmental disabilities while assisting and educating their families.
The Center has earned worldwide recognition for its complete interdisciplinary approach toward treating and preventing numerous developmental disabilities and for its groundbreaking advancements in related research.Top
