"We reached out to Karen at Calgary Adapted Hub as we were really struggling to find avenues to get our son with a physical disability active. She was so fantastic and took the time to get to know our son and us, offering so many suggestions, and she continues to send information our way as she finds more opportunities. Such a great organization!!" -Trina Beaudoin, mom to Brandon age 14
