A FUN COMMUNITY EVENT FOR
ALL AGES AND ABILITIES
ORGANIZED BY ZION CHURCH

WHAT: Make a Wheel Difference is a fundraiser to get wheelchairs for children with disabilities in Kenya. The objective will be to roll along a measured 100 metre stretch of the loop with only two good legs for each pair of participants. Use a wheeled device without a motor: wheelchairs, bicycles, strollers, wagons – get creative! Costumes are not required but are welcome. A church sponsored BBQ is planned for the same time.

WHERE & WHEN: September 25, 2021, 10:30am - 12:30pm at the loop around the baseball diamonds in Didsbury.

HOW: Sign up in pairs. Figure out your wheeled device. Find sponsors. Get around the loop. Cheer for your friends. Have fun. Grades from school, sports teams, businesses and other groups can put together teams to participate.

COSTS, FUNDS & PRIZES: There will be a $25 entry fee. All groups will also raise funds by finding sponsors. Special recognition will be provided to those groups who raise enough to cover the cost of a wheelchair which is $500. There will be prizes! All funds will go directly toward covering the cost of wheelchairs through BethanyKids.

BENEFITS: Friends and family can work together to make a difference in lives as they experience a little bit of the difficulty of a mobility challenge themselves. All ages and abilities can participate. This is a fun community event that makes a big difference in the lives of children who need wheelchairs.
