The event raised $633 and Dan and Wanita kindly matched those donations. At Dan’s request, these funds were added to funds raised by the Homan Hogan Charity Spiel (which you might have read about in the Spring issue of Community) increasing the Spiel total to nearly $50,000 in support of SCIO programs.
We are grateful to Dan and Wanita for their generosity and for embracing the vision of a fully accessible Ontario for people with spinal cord injury. Thank you to Dan, Wanita and the people of Smiths Falls for being local champions. And a special thank you to the store’s caring cashiers, essential workers during this challenging time. It isn’t easy to say Spinal Cord Injury Ontario all day, but we appreciate that you did, while inspiring others to care.
