REACH Needs…


REACH can’t do it alone – and we never feel alone with the life-changing and truly visionary leadership these organizations have shown.

When asked, they answered the call and then some.

To support REACH core programs and projects, please contact Jennifer Jeynes at

Air Canada Foundation

It takes a tremendous amount of strength, planning, finances, coordination and support to enable a child with a disability to attend recreational programs. That’s why Reach for the Rainbow is so thankful to our longstanding supporters at the Air Canada Foundation for their recent $55,000 grant towards the purchase of critical adaptive equipment. Items such as joggers, Terra Treks, adaptive ropes course harnesses, poolside lifts, ladders and chairs ensure accessibility and safe and enjoyable experiences and will be utilized during the 2017 spring and summer sessions in recreational programs. Air Canada Foundation support allows us to continue to do what we do best – and that is simply to provide opportunities for kids to just be kids.
