Law is proud to have once again kicked off the start of the holiday season by sponsoring the annual Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Alberta Christmas Peer Event. The afternoon of December 3rd saw close to 300 attendees converge on the University of Calgary’s MacEwan Hall for an afternoon of camaraderie, live entertainment, a silent auction, prize raffles (including a chance at 2 tickets anywhere WestJet flies), and, of course, turkey dinner with all the fixings!
This year, as always, the Peer Christmas Event sought to raise both spirits and funds; and by all accounts, the event was successful on all fronts.
SCI Alberta: Empowering Independence
Funds raised during the Peer Christmas Event will go directly to SCI Alberta. Since 1961, SCI Alberta has been helping Canadians with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities live independent, fulfilling lives. “Whether it be assisting a newly spinal cord injured child or adult, lobbying for better public transportation, or helping to create a more inclusive community, SCI Alberta embraces the approach that there is more than one way.”
Services offered by SCI Alberta include, but are not limited to:
- Affordable housing registry;
- Fitness, wellness, and nutrition guidance;
- Information services;
- Peer support; and
Community development and systemic change initiatives.
Just as organizations like SCI Alberta strive to aid those suffering from mobility issues in leading independent lives, Pipella Law works to ensure that spinal cord injuries caused by the negligence or actions of others are financially compensated.
Strong community support combined with financial security eases the trauma of spinal cord injuries and let those afflicted, live life on their own terms.
As tireless advocates for the disabled both in, and out of, the courtroom, Pipella Law is proud to have supported the Christmas Peer Event.
