Stefani Reid, Paralympian and client of Bloorview Prosthetic Services
"I started competing in the summer of 2003, beginning with the Ontario Paralympic Championships. Things have been going really well. In the summer of 2004 I competed in Edmonton at the Canadian Paralympic Track and Field Championships and Open Challenge and won both the 100 metre and the 200 metre, and I am currently training to compete at the World Championships in the summer of 2005 in Finland.
The team at Bloorview is phenomenal. The support and encouragement I have received from everyone there has meant so much. To see my same joy and excitement mirrored in their faces, first when I began to walk and again when I started to run, is incredible. They have allowed me to continue to dream without limits. I feel like there is nothing I can't do.”
