At Burn365 Fitness, we know millions of Canadians and many more across the globe are affected by disabilities. The people who fall into this number are all around us. They share our schools and our workplaces. They interact with the same physical and online environments we have grown dependent upon. Yet their lives are filled with unseen challenges. In silence, they wrestle with the tools, technology, and environments so often designed with people without disabilities in mind. The struggle is right in front of us, yet too often our eyes miss it.
At Burn365 Fitness, we believe we have the power to do something about it. We are actively working to ensure that anyone who lives with this struggle is provided with the resources and support needed to meet their educational, employment, and independent living goals. Through our unique fitness programs and campaigns, such as our Karma Nights, we are striving to raise awareness and funds to support accessibility. Burn365 Fitness partners with local and international organizations and businesses to advocate awareness and assistance necessary to meet today’s numerous disability needs.
