The 2012 Easter Seals Ambassador says you can do anything with a positive attitude.
Ten-year-old Luke Gaudet visited the Rotary Club of Summerside this week as part of a busy spring tour of Prince Edward Island aimed at raising money to help people with disabilities.
The grade five student at Eliot River Elementary School has Cerebral Palsy and lives in Cornwall with his parents and brother and sister.
“I have a great interest in cars, writing stories and music,” said Luke. “I also enjoy swimming and being outdoors. During the summer I attend Camp Gencheff. Making people laugh is something that is important to me and I enjoy laughing too; it helps me stay positive. My motto this year is you can do anything with a positive attitude.”
The 2012 Easter Seals Society of PEI Campaign Goal is to raise $130,000 for Islanders with disabilities. Money raised across the province is used to help children and adults here on PEI.
The Easter Seals Society of PEI Campaign is a franchised project of the Charlottetown Rotary Club, and supported by Rotary clubs in Summerside and Montague. A direct mail campaign, the Tim Hortons’ Ambassador’s School Tour, the Paper Egg campaign, Montague Variety Concert, PEI Rocket and Summerside Western Capitals Toonie Toss, Fireman vs. RCMP Hockey Game, Storm Basketball Game, Dooleys Pool tournament and other fundraising initiatives enable Easter Seals to help provide programs and equipment for people with disabilities on PEI.
The PEI Easter Seals Society has provided financial assistance to support programs at PEI Cerebral Palsy Association, Camp Gencheff, Stars for Life Foundation for Autism, PEI Rehabilitation Council, Joy Riders, CADS-PEI (disabled skiers association) and many other worthy organizations.
