Ausable Port Franks Optimist Club
Conductive Education Trust Fund
What the Organization Does:
Our organization runs a program each summer that helps kids with Cerebral Palsy get up and moving. With this program, kids get help moving and building and toning muscles that are rigid and uncontrollable. Through long days of repetitious exercise in our 4 week program kids will be able to take a few steps, they may be able to feed themselves and go to the washroom if they couldn’t before. It helps greatly with their motor skills. Parents are so grateful for all the help this program gives to their children.
What will the Money be Used for?:
All the money we raise goes to paying instructors that we hire from Hungary from the Peto Institute. This is the only place where this program is provided. It also provides equipment for the children to work with. It is run in 4 centers, Sarnia , Chatham, St Thomas and Windsor which are rented. This is the 15th year we are running this program . Conductive Education is solely run and funded by club donations and fund raising by the SWONT District Optimists and the trustees of Conductive Ed Program.
Bringing out the best in youth, in our communities and in ourselves.
