Downtown business donates wheelchair to curling club for 2022, 2023 national tourneys

Motion/Golden Mobility — formerly Easy Care Living Centre — at 319 Main Street North donated a wheelchair to the Moose Jaw Wheelchair Curling Club on Nov. 25.

Wheelchair curlers in Moose Jaw have received some help from a downtown business with equipment, which they will used when the club hosts the 2022 and 2023 national championships at Mosaic Place.

Motion/Golden Mobility — formerly Easy Care Living Centre — at 319 Main Street North donated a wheelchair to the Moose Jaw Wheelchair Curling Club on Nov. 25. The club is hosting the 2022 and 2023 Canadian Wheelchair Curling Championships at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre from Feb. 21-26, and Feb. 20-25, respectively.

Business manager Greg Moore was pleased to donate the wheelchair to the sports club.

"It's great because wheelchair curling isn't recognized enough yet," he said. "Wheelchair curling gives people their independence." 

The two tournaments continue the strong relationship between Moose Jaw and Curling Canada, which in addition to the 2020 Scotties has hosted the 2015 Scotties, the 2012 Canada Cup of Curling, the 1994 Canadian Senior Curling Championships, the 1983 World Women’s Curling Championship (first time hosted in Canada) and the 1979 World Junior Men’s Curling Championship.
