I would like to commend Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner for recognizing Aimee Brennan, a member of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program, at the Dec. 14 city council meeting.

Mayor Hepner presented Aimee with a certificate and flowers for her longtime involvement with The War Amps and for helping to spread important messages in the community. Aimee has been a Junior Counsellor at our BC CHAMP seminars, where she is a role model to the younger amputees by offering advice, sharing her experiences and exemplifying a positive approach to challenges.

She has also helped spread our PLAYSAFE message and laid wreaths at local Remembrance ceremonies on behalf of The War Amps Operation Legacy.

We are so pleased with Aimee’s well-deserved recognition by the City of Surrey.

Danita Chisholm, The War Amps
