Every year Garaventa Lift works with a variety of institutions to help implement accessibility and mobility solutions that foster inclusion, independence, and recreation for individuals with disabilities and medical condition. One of our longterm collaborations is the “Give a Kid a Lift” program with Easter Seals Alberta which we are very happy and proud to support for the 10th time.
This month our friends at Uppercut Elevators & Lifts installed a Garaventa Genesis Shaftway for the wonderful initiative “Give a Kid a Lift”. This year’s installation was for 15-year-old Jeslyn who was born with a rare subtype of Muscular Dystrophy. Jeslyn is a cheerful person that doesn’t let her disease stop her from living life to the fullest. She has competed in a triathlon, been the first para swimmer on her hometown’s swim team, is a big Oilers fan, plays sledge hockey, learned how to sit ski, and plays the piano. She even has her own Youtube channel “Life is What you Bake it” where she shares her love for baking.
It was a blast meeting Jeslyn and her family and seeing their big smiles!
