Last year, thanks to folks like you, we raised an incredible $18,000 through the golf tournament!  These funds were utilized to help fund accessible vans for three families in the area. The Hansard family posted the following heart warming message on facebook after purchasing their van:  “A huge thank you to all of the fantastic people who donate to Jaida’s Challenge. Your very generous support has helped us get our son Devon into a wheelchair accessible van. It has been a tremendous life changer for our family and has given Devon a major sense of independence. We are so grateful and really can’t express how much we appreciate your support!”

We will continue to fund families who require assistance purchasing wheelchair accessible vans for their children throughout 2018. This year however we will be directing funds raised at the golf tournament to other equipment and service challenges faced by these deserving families. Over the past year, along with funding accessible vans, we have funded communication devices such as an iPad and an eye gaze machine, transportation to therapy for several children, accommodations near Sick Kid’s to help manage post surgery risk, ambulance bills not covered by OHIP, and equipment to ensure the comfort and safety of children who require various kinds of protection and support. As always you can rest assured that all of your charitable dollars will end up in the hands of those who need them, as Jaida’s Challenge is staffed by volunteers resulting in negligible operating expenses.

This year our goal is $22,000! Together we can make a difference in the lives of these incredible children and their families!!
