Our event Ambassadors are faces of this signature event. They assist us with promotion of the event, raising funds for the event and share their personal stories with others. We are so pleased to welcome our 2021 Heroes Walk and Roll Ambassadors!
Kendra is 9 years old and was born with a severe form of Spina Bifida, Myelomeningocele and Hydrocephalus. These conditions have affected her both physically and mentally. She loves to go on long walks and hikes if it is wheelchair accessible to her and also loves to go swimming and doing lots of arts and crafts.
She is a very social person; she always has a smile on her face and will do what she can to keep a smile on yours! :)
Lansdowne has been an amazing support for Kendra throughout her life, and she currently has ongoing help from Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, and a Child & Youth worker. She loves the recreational programs and the Kids Country Inn. She has used speech therapy before school as well and is grateful for these programs and services.
Joshua is 6 years old, finishing grade 1 at St. Pius X Elementary School, and is the youngest of 3. Joshua has Autism Spectrum Disorder and his older sibling also has multiple diagnoses, which impacts his daily life. He loves to spend time with his family, go on adventures, camping, hiking and any type of water fun.
Joshua began his Lansdowne journey through Speech Therapy and after his diagnosis, he was able to participate in IBI Therapy full time. He thoroughly enjoys Recreation Therapy, which helps him develop good social skills, as well as make new friends. He is such a kind, caring, helpful little guy and can put a smile on anyone’s face.
