War Amps Cliff Chadderton to receive Today's Parent Magazine award in Toronto today

    TORONTO, April 17 /CNW Telbec/ - Today's Parent Magazine will present War
Amps CEO Cliff Chadderton with the 2007 For Kids' Sake Award at 9 a.m. today
(Tuesday April 17) in Stop 33 at Toronto's Sutton Place Hotel, 955 Bay Street.
    The For Kids' Sake Award is given to individuals who have made the world
better for Canadian children. As part of the Award, Mr. Chadderton will be
presented with a $10,000 cheque for The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP)
Program. Founded by Mr. Chadderton, CHAMP changes the lives of child amputees
through funding for artificial limbs, counselling, seminars and programs like
Matching Mothers.
    Mr. Chadderton was nominated for the Award by Annae Jones of Calgary, a
graduate of CHAMP born missing both arms. Having gone on to a successful
career and now raising a family, Annae cited Mr. Chadderton's influence on the
success she and so many other Champs have had. Some excerpts from her
nomination and supporting letters from others follow:

    "Cliff Chadderton's vision created a world-renowned program called CHAMP.
    Nothing else like it exists in the world. CHAMP played a pivotal role in
    my success. It was there every step of the way and gave my family hope. I
    thank Cliff for making a difference in my life and countless others." --
    Annae Jones, Calgary

    "We have known Cliff Chadderton since our beautiful baby daughter was
    born missing her lower arms from just below her elbows and her lower legs
    just above her knees. Our daughter, now 21, is a gem and about to
    graduate from a four year Commerce course at university. We owe so much
    of this to Cliff Chadderton and CHAMP." - John & Jackie Hilton, Halifax

    "Cliff Chadderton has played a crucial part in my life, challenging me to
    participate in any sport or activity I could. Academics were also
    something he has felt was very important to Champs, and started JUMPSTART
    knowing that knowledge of computers would be key, especially for multiple
    amputees like me. The members of CHAMP and their families owe Cliff a
    huge debt of gratitude." - Chris Koch, Ottawa

    Mr. Chadderton, who will be asked to speak after receiving the Award
today, is featured in the May issue of Today's Parent Magazine.
