Disability Awareness Week

Posted: June 2, 2010

The week of May 30th to June 5th has been declared Disability Awareness Week by the Premier's Council on the Status of Disabled Persons. District 16 schools are participating. The theme is "Yes We Can" and the aim is to promote support for persons with disabilities in New Brunswick. Disability Awareness prizes are being presented at district elementary schools and a "Walk and Roll" event is being encouraged at each school for Friday June 4th. This will involve 15 minutes of sustained walking or rolling to coincide with a province-wide Walk and Roll Challenge. The Walk and Roll event is not a fundraising event.
