Saint John “Champ” encourages kids to play safe

Marissa Gorjizadeh, 19, of Saint John, joined The War Amps PLAYSAFE/ DRIVESAFE float in Halifax’s recent Natal Day Parade, telling kids to “spot the danger before you play!”

Marissa was born a left arm amputee and is a member of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program. Through her role as a Safety Ambassador, she encourages kids to be aware of road signs and moving vehicles in their neighbourhoods. Marissa is well qualified to pass on the PLAYSAFE message as she knows what it is like to live without a limb and has met children who have lost limbs in accidents that could have been prevented.
