Donna Bartel

Donna has been involved with the ALS Society of BC since her mom’s diagnosis late 1999.  Since that time, Donna has been an avid fundraiser and an awareness-raiser for the society. Shortly after her mom’s diagnosis, Donna encouraged her mom to participate in a United Way video showcasing the support provided by the ALS Society of BC.  She has also convinced her sister to join her in many fundraising events, including starting and organizing the Run, Walk and Roll for ALS for eight years.  She has also competed in two Ironman Canada Triathlons as a fundraiser: “Tri’ing to End ALS”.

Donna has served on the board for six years. She is the chair of Team ALS BC & Yukon and vice-president on the board executive. Donna has a BSc and is the Environmental Sustainability Manager at Coast Mountain Bus Company.  Her strengths are in organizing, planning and problem-solving, researching and working with others to develop and implement initiatives.
