Alex Bondy

Regional Male Ambassador
Easter Seals Ontario (Windsor-Essex)

Alex is a bright six-year-old who loves gym, music and playing on his iPad. However, his favourite thing to do is show off his new skill: his ability to walk! He started walking after a successful knee operation last summer. He gets stronger and faster each day thanks to a device called a pacer, which helps support his weight. Walking has helped him discover his self-confidence.

Alex’s mother, Tanya Harrison, is always excited to let Alex’s personality shine through and to encourage the community to support Easter Seals. Since Alex was born, she has had the opportunity to learn firsthand how much Easter Seals can help kids with physical disabilities and their families.

Brigid Kidd

Regional Female Ambassador
Easter Seals Ontario (Windsor-Essex)

Brigid is a high-spirited 16-year-old who was born with cerebral palsy and a genetic condition called mitochondrial encephalomyopathy. The conditions affect all facets of her life, except for her “bring it on” attitude. Whether she’s braving the high ropes course at Camp Woodeden or curled up with the latest book from her favourite author, Raina Telgemeier, she faces every challenge with fierce determination.

“As an Ambassador, I want other kids to know that a disability doesn’t have to define you and to help parents learn what Easter Seals offers kids and families who face similar challenges,” says Kidd.
