Many years ago, Stouffville resident Luke Anderson was involved in a tragic mountain bike accident. Based on his experiences after his accident, Luke created an initiative called 'Stop-Gap;' ramps designed to create awareness as well as access for individuals with mobility issues.
Luke's initiative began in Stouffville, where he grew up and now he wants to put more ramps in other areas including Toronto. Check out this great video featuring Luke himself explaining his vision.
Luke and his family have organized a fundraiser for Stop Gap and asked the arts community for help. Artists have created unique art on a Stop Gap ramp and they will be auctioned off to raise money for the cause this Friday evening May 29th. If you can attend please consider this event. Even if you are unable to attend but would like to support this fantastic cause please visit the website stopgap.ca
This is an innovative solution to a very serious barrier for people with mobility issues. This is why I am pleased to be supporting this event.
Here is my contribution to this fundraiser...... my ramp /painting
