President’s Choice Children’s Charity provided a grant of almost $18,000 to support our You Can Bike Too adapted bicycle program. PCCC supports children with disabilities by providing financial grants for essential specialized equipment and essential therapists. Through this grant, we are able to supply much needed resources and help provide a renewed sense of independence, dignity, and freedom.

The Alberta Association of Insurance Adjusters (Northern Chapter) held its annual charity ball in November 2013. The event raised over $25,000 for You Can Bike Too.

You Can Bike Too is a program of EBC dedicated to helping children with special needs learn to ride bikes. EBC has been teaching special needs children to ride two-wheel bikes for nearly a decade, and this year we launched a program to loan adapted bikes to children who cannot ride a conventional bike. The loan program is free to families; we fund the program through volunteers, grants, donations, and our own budget.

The charity ball was well attended and had all the who’s who of the insurance claims industry in Edmonton. Thank you to the AAIA and the generous members of the insurance industry who supported us through this event!
