Motion Composites helps to secure $5000 donation from The Bryan Adams Foundation
Motion Composites, Canada’s leading folding carbon fiber wheelchair manufacturer, is proud to be part of securing a $5,000 donation from The Bryan Adams Foundation for Canadian Paraplegic Association (CPA) Ontario.
It all began when Motion Composites asked for all revenues from the sale of its lightweight Helio wheelchair to Ms. Jane Clark, landscape artist based in British Columbia and mother of internationally renowned singer Bryan Adams, be given to CPA Ontario. This gesture struck a chord in the singer’s heart, and he was moved to make his own donation of $5000 via his foundation to help CPA Ontario deliver much needed services and programs.
“As individuals working in the mobility industry for years now, we are extremely proud to be able to give back to the community.” says Eric Simoneau, CEO of Motion Composites. “We are amazed daily by the strength and will of people living with spinal cord injuries. Working to offer improved mobility to every single wheelchair user out there is a critical part of our mission, and we are glad to team up with The Bryan Adams Foundation to further achieve this goal through the excellent field work of Canadian Paraplegic Association Ontario.”
CPA Ontario assists people with spinal cord injury (SCI) and other physical disabilities to achieve independence, self-reliance and full community participation. Since 1945, CPA Ontario has provided programs and services to people with an SCI including regional services, peer to peer support, employment services, attendant services, advocacy support, membership services and information services.
“We are incredibly touched by the generosity shown to us from both Motion Composites and The Bryan Adams Foundation.” says Bill Adair, Executive Director of CPA Ontario. “Their much appreciated contributions will help CPA Ontario continue to deliver excellent programs and services to people that have spinal cord injuries across the province.”
