Once again, Jim N Fiona are organizing the Annual Charity Motorcycle Ride for CP to raise money for the OFCP Assistive Devices Funding Program. We are so thankful for their support!
"My daughter has cerebral palsy - spastic quadriplegia. She is seven years old and starts every day with a big and beautiful smile. Despite her gross-motor challenges, she can still keep her brother very busy. But in order for her to be mobile and to accomplish even the simplest tasks independently, she must use either a walker or a wheelchair.
In order to have beneficial results in her therapy treatments, a variety of other equipment is needed as well. Over the years, the different kinds of equipment that she requires have changed, and with that, expenses have increased as well.
The reason that this charity motorcycle ride came to be, was because my boyfriend and I realized that despite the fortune of having been able to manage these expenses so far, there are still many others out there who find themselves at a disadvantage.
In order to live a life that is meaningful, dignified, and independent, my daughter requires the use of a variety of very costly assistive devices.
We want anyone who faces these kinds of challenges, to be able to live life to the fullest.
This charity motorcycle ride helps to raise awareness and money, that is used to fund the Assistive Devices Program through OFCP."
The 2nd Annual Charity Motorcycle Ride for Cerebral Palsy will take place on Sunday, August 16, 2015.

How we help our donors make an informed choice
When our donors make an informed choice to donate their used clothes and household items to the Ontario Federation of Cerebral Palsy, it creates a world of inclusion, activities, assistive devices and freedom of choice for our members......
Critical facts the Federation want you to know:
OFCP directly employs over 190 people in our pick up services department.
OFCP telephone representatives, confirmers, drivers, route managers, bin locators and supervisors work within 4 branch offices in the province of Ontario to make our pick up program a success.
We DO NOT lend our name to for profit used clothing companies, who in turn pay a small percentage back to the charity.
OFCP creates gainful employment opportunities in Ontario and the Federation is committed to employment equity and a safe working environment where every employee is respected.
100% of our profits, after operating expenses go to our programs, members and fund essential services.
