Life as We Know it
Helping kids play it safe with War Amps
Stephanie de Koning brings experience and a love of working to kids in the Warm Amps Champ Program.
hen Chilliwack resident Stefanie de Koning, 16, lost the lower part of her left leg, she didn't let it stop her, and based on her own experience, she began reaching out to kids through the Champ program to encourage them to play it safe.
"Every year we see children
enrolling in our Champ Program due to lawn mower accidents that could have
been prevented. These accidents can happen so quickly and lead to
life-altering consequences," says Rob Larman, Director of Playsafe.
