Jim McCullough receives Reverend Roy Essex Award

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Each year, March of Dimes Canada takes an evening to celebrate remarkable community partners and employees.

‘Like most charities, March of Dimes Canada relies heavily on its wonderful volunteers,’ says Andria Spindel, CEO and President of MODC. ‘I don’t know where we would be without them.’

Jim McCullough of Peterborough recently received the Reverend Roy Essex Award, which is given to a long-term volunteer who demonstrates commitment and makes an outstanding contribution to the goals of MODC.

McCullough has been involved with MODC since 2006 as chairperson of Life After Stroke Peterborough. He advocates strongly for stroke recovery in his community and makes sure that stroke survivors and their caregivers know they aren’t alone.

‘Jim’s dedication and stamina are incredible,’ continues Spindel. ‘He’s had a remarkable impact on stroke recovery in Peterborough, and I’m so happy we could acknowledge his hard work.’
