Once again, Team MEDAIR teamed up with Team KALEA in support of EASTER SEALS, ONTARIO. EASTER SEALS assists physically disabled children and their families with Mobility Devices such as walkers and wheelchairs. One wheelchair can cost upwards of $3,000 and, just as children grow out of shoes and clothes, they also grow out of wheel chairs! They need replacing every few years. EASTER SEALS also help send kids with physical disabilities to Summer Camp. The cost to send one child to camp is over $2,000. At Summer Camp, kids enjoy kayaking, sailing, swimming, cookery, arts & crafts, games, archery, fishing, camping out, nature trails, evening campfire songs and wonderful food; whilst always under the watchful eyes of trained volunteers. As Easter Seals Ambassador in 2014 Kalea’s message was that ALL kids should be able to enjoy Summer Camp.
MEDAIR CEO Andy Davies ran the 10k course while other staff and family walked/ran either the 10K or 5K courses. Remarkably, 2014 Easter Seals Ambassador Kalea Davies, completed the 5K walk in a personal best time, testimony to her determination and grit in the face of mobility issues she has been battling since birth. She is making such great progress and we are sure she will beat her time yet again in 2019.
