Andrew had the honour of meeting some really amazing children during a Karate belting ceremony for the “Kids Kicking Cancer” program held at Hospice Windsor. Andrew handed out new Teddy Bears to each of them to help provide them with some comfort during the challenges that they have in front of them.
Our friends at Transition to Betterness (T2B) piloted Canada’s first KKC in Windsor, Ontario in 2010 and seeing how important and beneficial it is for these young children and their families this program continues to grow with great pride and success.
