CEO Cliff Chadderton with the 2008 Circle of Honour Award at 6:15 p.m. tonight

    The Award recognizes exceptional contribution to creating a better world

outstanding achievements in the area of advocacy, education, philanthropy,
research and service related to children's rehabilitation and complex care.
    A leg amputee himself due to injuries sustained in the Battle of the
Scheldt in World War II, Mr. Chadderton was selected for the Circle of Honour
Award for reasons detailed in the following excerpts from the profile prepared
by Bloorview Kids Rehab:

    "Clifford Chadderton's contributions in the areas of amputation and
    rehabilitation have spanned a lifetime. Cliff's innovation and creativity
    prompted the creation of the revolutionary Child Amputee (CHAMP) program
    in 1975. CHAMP is the only program of its kind in the world and has
    gained international renown for its innovative assistance to children who
    are born missing limbs or lose limbs due to accidents or medical
    reasons....Bloorview's Prosthetics and Orthotics department has
    benefitted a great deal from CHAMP's sustained support, from funding to
    assist with professional development ensuring the newest technology is
    researched and available to Canadian amputees, to resources that help
    children get the equipment they need to reach their individual goals.
    Leading by example, Cliff's legacy of inclusiveness has had a lasting
    impact on generations of children with disabilities and their families
    around the world. "

    Bloorview Kids Rehab is Canada's largest pediatric rehabilitation and
complex continuing care teaching hospital, with almost 52,000 outpatient
visits annually from all over Ontario, across Canada and around the world.
