Safe once again

Page 6 of 6

In the last two weeks alone I have been contacted by a school board from Vancouver with classes that have kids with disabilities wanting to come up to Whistler and looking for inexpensive activities for the kids. Although this would not be the main attraction or activity for them it would be an added benefit and at least if they went by the playground near the Marketplace IGA they would not feel left out because they would be able to stop and play for a bit. If the kids have a great time they will come back with their parents and most likely stay a few nights as well.

I have also just secured accommodations for a very special child coming up for a few days with his family and we are setting up things for them to do right now. These are just some of the visitors who have contacted Whistler For the Disabled but there are thousands of others who are using the website to find the information they need to visit Whistler.

I hope the RMOW will be able to fund a similar project in Whistler. I have already spoken to them about this over a month ago and they are looking into it. Let’s all cross our fingers and hope for the best for the Whistler community and that a similar project will come to Whistler soon.
