One Tough Mudder!

One of our clients, Rand Surbey, was just a little bit busy this weekend!  He enjoys exploring his community, meeting new people and pushing the boundaries, as you can see in this news clip. We hope that you’re resting this week, Rand, but we suspect not…  😉  http://globalnews.ca/news/1414373/one-extremely-tough-mudder-completes-course-in-his-wheelchair/

Communication Access Now!

  • Materials to host information sessions in your communities

Support your clients to learn about and advocate for communication accessibility:
