Every day presents us with opportunities to give back; to do our small part to improve the lives of others. To support and strengthen the communities in which we live, work and raise our children. As President of the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC, I would like to invite you to join us in providing opportunities for young people living with cerebral palsy to achieve their educational aspirations.
The focus of the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC’s fourth annual Gala is Learn Without Limits. Our goal is to support and empower young people living with cerebral palsy to achieve their goals through advanced education.
As a lawyer, education has provided me with a great opportunity to practice law and the privilege to represent children living with cerebral palsy, and their families. The people I have come to know with cerebral palsy are tremendously driven and resilient, and will do extraordinary things when given the opportunities which help break down barriers created by their disability.
Often, the financial costs and medical demands caused by their disability create barriers to funding post – secondary education. I have personally met with several recipients of education bursaries granted by the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC and their stories of what they have been able to achieve are truly remarkable. For this reason, my firm, Pacific Medical Law, has been supporting the education bursary program at the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC for several years now and will continue to do so, with the firm belief that education opens doors and creates opportunities.
Imagine for a moment how your financial support of the Learn Without Limits fundraising Gala can change the life path of a hardworking, determined young person living with cerebral palsy with a dream of furthering their education. Imagine the pride that person will feel upon graduation, and the employment opportunities that their education will provide.
I am hopeful you share our view of the importance of supporting young people living with cerebral palsy with their educational goals. I encourage you to become a sponsor and join us at the fourth annual Gala on March 15, 2018, to celebrate the accomplishments of past education bursary recipients, and to support future young people in pursuing their educational aspirations.
