    CANADIAN FOUNDATION FOR PHYSICALLY DISABLED PERSONS

    In Canada there are over two million people with physical disabilities. These Canadians have specialized needs for housing, education, treatment and research. Many require assistance with respect to retraining, employment and recreation. The need is great and public awareness is low. 

    The CANADIAN FOUNDATION FOR PHYSICALLY DISABLED PERSONS was established in 1985 to assist people with physical disablities to live fuller lives. The foundation has since initiated a number of successful ventures such as:

    Rolling Rampage

    Why Not Marathon

    The Great Valentine Galas

    Canadian Helen Keller Centre

    The Rotary Cheshire Home

    Terry Fox Hall of Fame

    King Clancy Awards

    Jeff Adams CN Tower Climb

    WhyNot Magazine - 3x Annually

    Globe and Mail, Focus on Ability Toronto Star, Perspectives

    The Eternal Flame of Hope

    • Arranged fitting recognition for paralympic medal winners 1984-2004
    • Contributed over $300,000 to Sport for Disabled Ontario
