Running for Mila  - May 7 2023 8:30 am

Kimberley and Mila will be participating in the BougeBouge Festival & Ile Perrot half marathon together. The monies raised will help pay for Mila's Ora Levity Device and for specialized physical therapy so that can regain her ability to walk again after being diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis. 

The Ora Levity Smart Device provides partial weight support during physical rehabilitation for children with walking disorders like Mila’s. This weight support technology can be adjusted based on the Mila's progress to maximize the effectiveness of her gait training. In addition, the device does not have armrests which encourages Mila to place more weight on her legs, strengthening her muscles. By having her hands free, Mila can better interact with her environment. Using the Levity has been very beneficial for Mila as she has been using the device for a few months and there have been marked improvements in her walking pattern and distance.
