Pacific Medical Law has established a bursary fund in honor of Janna Epp, a beautiful, determined young girl with cerebral palsy, who faced challenges that few of us could imagine. Sadly, on October 11, 2012 Janna passed away.
As we announced some time ago, throughout the month of September a team of lawyers at Pacific Medical Law is participating in a global fundraising and public awareness initiative for individuals living with cerebral palsy. In reponse to the "The Steptember Challenge" we have each committed to taking 10,000 steps a day, and raising funds for this very worthy cause.
Pacific Medical Law donated $10,000 to support the Cerebral Palsy Association of British Columbia. These funds will go toward a variety of valuable services including providing bursaries for post-secondary school and summer camp, and supporting two new exciting programs being launched this year: dance and yoga for children with cerebral palsy.
