VANCOUVER, March 24 /CNW Telbec/ - The War Amps Winner's Circle
philosophy encourages child amputees to overcome their amputations and live
full and active lives. Today, on day two of the 2007 B.C. Child Amputee
(CHAMP) Seminar, War Amps Champs will demonstrate the recreational limbs and
devices they use to do this.
At 1:30 p.m. in Stanley Park Ballroom 1 of Vancouver's Westin Bayshore
Hotel, young Champs attending the Seminar from across B.C. will demonstrate
their recreational limbs and devices, including those for golfing, swimming,
hockey, cycling and weightlifting in a session called Amputees in Action!
Morning sessions from 9 to 11:15 a.m. include: PLAYSAFE (Cypress Room 1)
for Champs 6-11 to learn how to be War Amps Safety Ambassadors; Teen Issues
(Cypress 2) for Champs 12 & up featuring videos on working, driving and body

exchange information (at 10:15 a.m. this group moves to the Stanley Park
