Resilience – Alice’s Story
The Pon family is an incredible example of resilience in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges. We first learned about Alice Pon when her daughters submitted her story of strength and love to our 2019 Boost of Energy program. As a result of working with an amazing team in Edmonton, we were able to help Alice’s daughters show their gratitude to their mom through creating a wheelchair-accessible backyard oasis that the entire family could enjoy. Thank you to everyone in the community who helped to bring this project to life. There is nothing truer to the spirit of this province than helping a neighbour—we are so inspired by the energy of everyone involved and proud to give back to an inspiring local family.
