"The Children’s Rehabilitation Foundation is a Manitoba charity, dedicated to helping children with disabilities and special needs be as independent as possible. We are the fund raising arm for the Rehabilitation Centre for Children (RCC). The Centre is an outpatient facility providing rehabilitation services and specialized health clinics for children and youth who live with life-long conditions."
The overall funds raised that day was $170,000 and I believe we were personally able to raise $360. What a great day of walking, talking, enjoying the beautiful weather and great company. In addition to walking with our close friends Michelle, Dave and their son Brayden, we were also surprised along the walk with a visit from one of Stephanie's weekly respite workers. She was waiting along the walk just to cheer us on and ended up joining us for most of it!
Just after our walk, we had a great opportunity to meet Janine Hanson, the 2012 Olympic Silver Medalist in Women's Rowing. She was a great encouragement to all the children and adults participating in the 10K walk. We even got a signed card and photograph with Janine!
