George Argyros, Jr. has leveraged his expertise in launching new business ventures into a leadership position for his company, Elite Financial Group, LLC. Additionally, George Argyros, Jr. has donated to many good causes including the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

Since 1950, the MDA has led efforts to mitigate the effects of muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular diseases. Besides sponsoring some 200 research projects, the MDA organizes week-long summer camps, to encourage children to improve their quality of life in a barrier-free environment.

Camps benefit both children and caregivers. The children get to enjoy sports such as hockey, soccer, and baseball with disability-friendly options. Dances, arts and crafts, and talent shows stretch the capabilities of campers, increase self-esteem, and foster friendships. Camp staff provide adaptive measures that allow any child to take part in any activity.

Parents and guardians get a break from their caretaking responsibilities, knowing their children are receiving top-notch care for the mind and body alike, and fully trained volunteers and medical specialists are never far from the children.
