Fourteen-year-old Aimee Brennan is an active member of The War Amps Child Amputee Program and was honoured this week for her involvement with the organization.

Proud of our CHAMP

Aimee Brennan has been recognized by the City of Surrey

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

Hepner presented Aimee with a certificate and flowers for her long-time involvement with The War Amps and for helping to spread important messages in the community.

Aimee has been a Junior Counsellor at our B.C. CHAMP seminars, where she acts as a role model for 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 Day ceremonies on behalf of The War Amps Operation Legacy.

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

Danita Chisholm,

Executive Director, CHAMP Program
