I support Easter Seals because it not only provides kids with disabilities a great opportunity to be themselves, it provides the parents a well deserved week of respite.

It has been my desire to support organizations over the years that ensure the care and support of children, building of community and the independence and enrichment of individuals. That is why I am happy to be part of Easter Seals Alberta as they make a difference in the lives of Albertans with disabilities and medical conditions.

I support Easter Seals Alberta because I feel passionately about the experiences we’re able to provide at Camp Horizon. Camp allows individuals with disabilities to get outdoors, be physically active, and not have their disability hold them back.
