Chantelle and Warren's Epic Fundraiser!

Many of you may already know that Chantelle had a mountain bike crash in Valemount on June 15th. She was medevaced to Edmonton where she has been in the neurological ICU ever since. She badly damaged three vertebrae and her spinal cord. Thankfully her helmet did its job and she has no brain trauma so the Chantelle that we all know and love is with us. In general, a person with Chantelle’s injury is expected to have no movement below the neck and be unable to breathe without the use of a ventilator. Chantelle has been making huge progress with her breathing, but is still in need of some help.

Chantelle and Warren have many immediate needs for funding while they are in Edmonton as well as preparing for Chantelle’s return to Prince George and long term future care.


There is a fantastic financial opportunity available to Chantelle called a Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP). The great thing about this type of plan is that every year, the government will multiply a payment of $1500 to the RDSP, for an annual total of $5000! Add that up over 22 years (until Chantelle turns 50) along with interest and they will be set for a very long time. For more info on the RDSP please go to: https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/tax/individuals/topics/registered-disability-savings-plan-rdsp.html


Our goal for this fundraising campaign is to ensure their current needs are being met and their future needs are being prepared for. We plan to help them make the maximum annual RDSP payment, $1500 a year for the next 22 years, which equals $33,000. The funds sitting in their account will also be available for any current or future needs encountered (housing, food, accessibility renos, a powerchair, etc.).
