There’s something exciting about meeting an athlete!

Aim2Walks annual client appreciation day was this past week and it was one for the books! With a family BBQ feel, we had many clients, friends, neighbours and co-workers out to enjoy good food, fun company and a special guest, ParaPan Am athlete Wes Vick. From 2-6pm, we had a steady crowd coming in and a room full of people who stayed most of the day. We were so happy to have so many bright faces out to enjoy the event!

JP spent most of the day barbecuing the meat while roasting in the sun himself. (You did a great job JP! We may have to get you a larger BBQ next year to meet this years’ large demand.) Thank you to all those who pitched in and brought some food along to share. It’s always nice to have extra options and new foods to try. With all the mouths to feed, it was very much appreciated!

We invited a few special guests this year including John Abramowicz from Kintech Orthopedics Ltd. He had some of his newest pieces of technology and chatted with clients about possible pieces he can create to help with all sorts of body mechanical issues.

KoolWay Sports was kind enough to donate some products for our giveaway and they had some coats on display for clients to see. Many of their products are built especially for those in wheelchairs to make life more accessible and comfortable when covering up for the outdoors.

Adam Janssen and Kayla Cornale from Athletics Canada came for the day with rollers and racing wheelchairs for our clients to try. Wes Vick, who will be competing in August for the ParaPan Am Games also payed us a visit and gave us a demonstration in his racing chair. Our clients were more then excited to have a true athlete at our event and he was more then happy to give autographs and take pictures with our clients. It was a real treat!

It was a successful day and we hope all who came enjoyed it as much as we did. We are already starting to plan for next years’ big event!

A BIG THANK YOU to all our supporters and for all the donations for our Prize table!
