CVWSS supports Operation Freedom Paws Canada

January 20, 2023

Mental Health was the winner when CV Wheelchair Sports Society president Stephane Roy presented Barb Ashmead of Freedom Paws Canada with $1000, raised at CVWSS’s recent Hoopfest event. Hoopfest focussed on mental health among first responders. FPC trains service dogs to help sufferers of PTSD cope and Ashmead’s own service dog, Ziva, was on hand to approve the transaction. Wheelchair basketball is on Tuesdays at 7 pm, at Comox Community Centre, open to anyone with any level of ability or disability.
