Post by George Kambouris, Carindale resident and owner of Living on Wheels. We wrote about George earlier this year.

Talking to kids at the Spina Bifida Association last yearHow many children are there in wheelchairs in Brisbane? And how many children in wheelchairs and their families are prepared for a life in one?

I’m really keen to pass on the experiences and knowledge I have obtained and to help children, not only with everyday tasks, but also about fun, games and sport in wheelchairs.

Come along for an intro to “Living On Wheels” – a showcase of what my new program will be offering. It’s a free event for the whole community. Please let as many people know as possible, especially kids in wheelchairs and their families and friends!
