Regardless of whether it’s in the north, south, east or west, if there is anyone at all who is willing to go the distance to raise awareness and support for Easter Seals kids and their families, it is Casey Mackay! There are no boundaries or limits to the extent that Casey will go for Easter Seals. He is always willing and eager to represent Easter Seals and speaks at multiple events throughout a year. Casey speaks with great compassion and love, and tells stories that never fails to leave an audience with a clearer understanding and insight into the life of a child/person with physical disabilities. But more importantly, he demonstrates that through strength and determination, and with some help from Easter Seals, that nothing is impossible: there is only unlimited possibilities for Easter Seals kids. There is nothing that he can’t do. At one such event, he took the dance floor by storm and danced his favourite country song with his walker, cowboy boots, hat and all! There was no doubt that he was the star that evening!
Recently, Casey was honored at the Easter Seals Celerity Slo- Pitch tournament by the Major of Barrie, where he also received an Honorary Citizen of Barrie Award for his commitment and compassion within the community. Not only is Casey an excellent speaker and ambassador for Easter Seals, he is also an avid fundraiser; he led the way last year as one of the top fundraisers for The Toronto Maple Leafs Skate. Because of Casey Mackay’s support, time and dedication to Easter Seals Ontario, the organization is stronger, and its mission has reached a wider audience and continues to resonate with donors, volunteers and stakeholders alike. Thank you Casey!
We are immensely pleased to pay tribute to Casey Mackay by presenting him with a 2019 Easter Seals National Volunteer Award.
