[Ages 8 to 18; Grades 3 to 12]

Online via Zoom
Thursday, December 2nd
6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Advanced registration required. Register in person, online, or by phone.

Join us for a special presentation with the Rick Hansen Foundation (RHF) in celebration of the annual International Day of Persons with Disabilities on December 3rd.

Excluding or ignoring others is a painful form of bullying. This virtual presentation with RHF Ambassador Kuen Tang will help children and students develop a better appreciation for the importance of inclusion and accessibility for those with disabilities. Participants will hear how understanding and kindness are the first steps to make sure those with disabilities are never left out.

Kuen lives in Edmonton, Alberta with her husband and little son. Before her son was born, she sustained a spinal cord injury but using a wheelchair doesn’t stop her from fulfilling her dreams. Kuen’s accomplishments include acclaimed work in the comic book industry, sports achievements and incredible hiking expeditions.

RHF activity worksheets are available for students to get the most out of the presentation:

Presented in partnership with the Rick Hansen Foundation, the Municipality of Clarington, and the Municipal Accessibility Advisory Committee.
