VANCOUVER, June 11, 2012 /CNW/ - Campaign Chair, Scott Wells announced
the launch of the www.goingstrong.ca website designed to inform everyone about the new and exciting 60th Anniversary 'Going Strong' Campaign. Over the years, hundreds of
Kinsmen both past and present, throughout the Province of BC, have
given support to the Foundation in the delivery of support/services to
people with physical disabilities.
As part of the celebration, the Kinsmen Foundation of BC wants to locate
everyone who was a member of the Kinsmen Family over the past 60 years.
We are "Calling all Kin." In particular, we are looking for all past
"Marching Mothers" who assisted in the Annual Kinsmen's Mothers March
held each year to raise funds throughout the province. In order to
help us find current and former members of Kin - there is a 'drop-down'
menu on our website entitled "Calling All Kin." Click on that menu and
it will help you register with the Foundation. Or if you wish, you can
go to www.callingallkin.ca and fill in the questions.
We'd like to find all members of the Kin Family and let you know how the
Foundation is doing and how you can help.
For 60 years the Kinsmen Foundation of BC has served the needs of people
with physical disabilities. The Foundation was initially established to
find a cure for the dreaded disease, polio. When that cure was found,
the Foundation then moved into the area of rehabilitation for
post-polio survivors and other people with physical disabilities. The
Mission of the Kinsmen Foundation is to support many worthwhile
organizations and individuals facing the daily challenges of living
with a severe physical disability and improve their quality of life and
