Variety Mobility Day will return for its second year on Wednesday, June 24. A day set aside to celebrate accessibility and inclusiveness, last year’s inaugural celebration included a Block Party and a Sunshine Family Van presentation. The day also saw British Columbians come together to fund ten Adaptive Trikes in our five health regions.
“Many children with disabilities and their families have been staying inside these days making mobility more important than ever,” said Marco Pasqua, Public Speaker, Entrepreneur & Variety Mobility Day Honourary Chair. “That’s why supporting Variety Mobility Day enables these amazing children in our community to have the opportunity to stay active with our special trikes … keeping them fit and encouraging them to get outside as much as possible. I’m so excited that I’m able to participate in Mobility Day again this year especially to encourage Canadians to stay positive and fit as we head into summer.”
This year, we’ll be asking you to share your #MobilityMoment with us on our social media platforms … whatever that means for you. Going for a swim, bike ride, walk or run … how have you been keeping your body moving while focussing on physical distancing? There will be an Adaptive Bike presentation to Ethan, a 6-year old boy from the Sunshine Coast who was diagnosed with Nemaline Myopathy, a congenital, hereditary neuromuscular disorder on our Facebook Live at 1:00 pm.
Plus you won’t want to miss our Variety Mobility Day virtual concert with The Washboard Union on our Facebook Live at 7:00 pm!
