Funds raised are used to improve the quality of life for school-aged children and teenagers with disabilities across Canada, for example through:
- Home modifications;
- Recreation programs;
- Sports and all-terrain wheelchairs;
- Vehicle hand controls and assistive devices; and
- Wheelchair ramps.
These initiatives provide greater independence and improve social connections as they allow greater community participation for young people living with disabilities.
If your school would like to raise awareness of the potential of people with disabilities and improve accessibility and inclusion, take a look at www.rickhansen.com/AIM
. Fundraising is entirely optional, but if your school should choose to do so, you can be sure that the funds you raise will have a real and lasting impact on the lives of young people with disabilities across Canada!
