April 19 – 25, 2009: National Volunteer Appreciation Week

The RLS Foundation is proud to have well over 100 volunteers across the US and Canada. With National Volunteer Week just around the corner, we'd like to take a moment to thank the individuals who make our work possible.

Thank you Board Members: For all you do in governing our Foundation and fostering our mission of raising RLS awareness, bettering treatments and leading us to a cure.

Thank you Support Group Leaders: For offering meetings, phone calls, emails, hope and support to those living with RLS. You are the backbone of our support organization.

Thank you Contacts: Your emails and phone calls are helping individuals realize they are not alone and that information on RLS is just a click away.

Thank you Advocates: For allowing a strong voice to be heard at health fairs, meetings, in newspapers, as well as on the radio and television. Without you, RLS would still be "the most common disease you've never heard of."

Thank you Committee Members: You are singling out issues relative to the RLS Foundation in 2009 and paving a way for the future!

Thank you to everyone who gives to the RLS Foundation. Together we are reaching out to the RLS community, funding research, and bettering the lives of those living with RLS. We are sincerely grateful for your volunteerism and support.
