Donna Bartel

Donna has been involved with the ALS Society since her mom’s diagnosis late 1999.  Since that time, Donna has been an avid fundraiser and awareness raiser for the ALS 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.  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”.

She has served on the board for eight years and is the chair of the Team ALSBC & Yukon volunteer program and on the board executive as vice-president.    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.
