WHAT IS MIA'S RIDE?


If you haven't met Mia yet, she will melt your heart! Mia is a joyful 8-year-old who lives in West Kelowna with her twin sister and parents. Mia has severe Cerebral Palsy, affecting all aspects of her life, including her hearing and speech, and confining her to a wheelchair. Every day poses a new challenge for Mia and her family, but getting around is incredibly cumbersome.

The current family vehicle is not adapted (or adaptable) for a wheelchair, and several times a day, Mia's mom manually lifts Mia in and out of her wheelchair and then manually loads and unloads the heavy wheelchair.

After two years of research, scouring classified ads and gathering quotes, the family has determined the most suitable vehicle for their needs. With their regular trips to the Vancouver Children's Hospital, it needs to be reliable.

The cost of the van and conversion is $108,000. They have raised around $9600, so we have a big goal!

We aim to make this goal a reality with your kindness and support!
