Emma Coakley, 10, was presented with a certificate by Mayor Don Darling to recognize her involvement with The War Amps and for spreading important messages in the community.
Emma, born a right hand amputee, is a member of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program. She is a strong advocate of the PLAYSAFE message and has rode on The War Amps float in local parades, encouraging kids to “spot the danger” before they play.
She has also helped pass on the remembrance message by giving presentations on behalf of The War Amps Operation Legacy.
Congratulations Emma! For more information about War Amps visit www.waramps.ca
