Cole is a high school student and CTN youth volunteer who uses a wheelchair. His mom, Michelle, heard about CTN’s Recreation Loan Program from a local team facilitator (LTF) in the community and asked to borrow our snow coach to enjoy with the family. While pushing a snow coach can be an upper body workout for mom, dad or a sibling, it’s a great way to get out and enjoy the winter with the whole family (and the dog too).
Watch Cole and his parents enjoy some outdoor fun with our snow coach!
Families can borrow our snow coach for two weeks through CTN’s Recreation Loan Program. Speak to your child’s team about the program. They may have some suggestions about which recreation equipment would support your child’s goals. Alternatively, you can contact Jacqui Wesselingh, LTF (Simcoe County) at firstname.lastname@example.org or Christian Marquez, Rehabilitation Assistant (York Region) at email@example.com for assistance.
Before you borrow our snow coach, here’s what you need to know about contactless pick up and drop off:
