In case you missed it, Aim2Walk appeared on a segment of CTV News during their 6:00pm show on Friday night. Click the link below and check it out!
They wanted to cover a story on Briton Amos, the President and Founder of Humanitarian Mobility International (HMI). HMI is a registered charity based in Ottawa, Canada, with a mandate to provide mobility equipment to those in need across the globe.
Briton’s story starts tragic – he is a victim of a violent carjacking in California over 20 years ago during which he was shot. Briton was left paralyzed from the waist down from the bullet that is still lodged in his spine to this day. But Briton was able to turn this tragic event into good. Not only did he start HMI, but he was involved in the landmark court case helping to ensure that motor vehicle insurance companies provide coverage for “injury caused by an accident that arises out of the ownership, use or operation of a vehicle”. Basically, you are covered even if you are injured while not driving the vehicle. For example, a pedestrian struck by another car is covered under their individual motor vehicle insurance.
Briton’s next helpful endeavour? He wants to see a Lokomat in Ottawa.
