    OTTAWA, Sept. 16 /CNW Telbec/ - War Amps CEO Cliff Chadderton has been
presented with a cheque for $11,000 from TELUS and its team members to assist
The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program.
    CHAMP member Dante Fotia, 3, of Nepean, Ontario, who is a left leg
amputee, accepted the cheque with Mr. Chadderton at The War Amps National
Headquarters in Ottawa.
    TELUS, one of Canada's leading telecommunications companies, maintains as
an important part of its mission and culture a long-standing tradition to give
where they live and be actively involved in each of the many communities it
serves. TELUS presented the funds as part of its employee giving program, in
which funds raised and charitable time given by TELUS employees is matched by
the company through its annual Dollars for Dollars program.
    "In accepting this cheque, we commend the TELUS team for its dedication
and commitment in carrying out this program. These funds will go a long way in
assisting youngsters in our CHAMP Program," said Mr. Chadderton, who founded
CHAMP in 1975.

    Utilizing the "Winner's Circle" philosophy, CHAMP changes the lives of
child amputees through financial assistance for artificial limbs, counselling,
regional seminars and programs like Matching Mothers.
